The official website for the the upcoming The IDOLM@STER film, THE IDOLM@STER MOVIE: Kagayaki no Mukōgawa e! (The IDOLM@STER Movie: To the Glittering Other Side!), updated on Saturday, and began streaming a new promotional video for the film.
Not only does the promotional video inform viewers that the producer is working his very hardest to help the idols prepare themselves at a training camp for their upcoming arena concert, he also reveals that there are new girls joining the team as back-up dancers for the arena concert. These girls are all idols featured in GREE's The IDOLM@STER: Million Live mobile game that started service earlier this year. The Million Live idols that will appear in the film will be Minako Satake (voiced by Eri Ōzeki), Kana Yabuki (Ibuki Kido), Yuriko Nanao (Miku Itō), Seriko Hakozaki (Momo Asakura), Anna Mochizuki (Shiina Natsukawa), Shiho Kitazawa (Sora Amamiya), and Nao Yokoyama (Yui Watanabe).
In addition, the theme songs for the film were also announced. The main theme song for the film will be “M@STERPIECE,” the ending theme of the film will be “Niji-iro Miracle” (Rainbow-Colored Miracle, and “Ramune Iro Seishun” (Ramune-Colored Youth) will serve as an insert song. All songs will be performed by the 765PRO ALLSTARS. The website also updated with a new key visual (seen above).
The staff will be same as that from the second television series, including the anime studio A-1 Pictures, writers Atsushi Nishigori and Tatsuya Takahashi, and director/character designer Atsushi Nishigori.
The film will premiere in Japanese theaters on January 25, 2014. Those who pre-order their tickets for the film from LAWSON's Loppi service on November 24 will receive a limited edition new, original drama CD and illustration with it (illustration seen at right).
