posted on by Egan Loo
A television commercial for Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Shinpen: Hangyaku no Monogatari (Puella Magi Madoka Magica New Feature: Rebellion), the upcoming third Madoka Magica film, began airing in Japan this weekend:
With minor differences from the previous preview, the ad shows new footage of Madoka, Homura, and other characters and has the following lines:
"No one understands this sadness I feel."
A solitary girl has arrived
A beacon of light towards hope
They will overturn everything
The new "rules"
"Who are you?"
I want to meet you, just one more time.
The teenaged female duo ClariS and the Japanese pop trio Kalafina will be singing the theme songs for the film, just as they did for the television series and the first two films.
The film will open in Japan on October 26. Advance tickets went on sale in theaters on Saturday, and buyers can get the first batch of tickets with a card and an exclusive clear file folder.
The film will then open in the United States, Canada, and France this year. Aniplex announced at Japan Expo in Paris that the film will debut in France on November 16. Aniplex aims to release the third film in still more countries worldwide, just as it did for the first two films.
