posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Announcement made as part of franchise's 5th anniversary

The end of the final episode of the second season of the Love Live! School idol project TV anime revealed on Sunday that production on a completely new film for the franchise has been green-lit. The staff of the anime confirmed this over Twitter soon after the episode was broadcast, and added that more information will be posted on the anime's official website at midnight, JST.

The film is the first part of the franchise's fifth anniversary project. The second project will be a "μ's Fan Meeting Tour 2015 ~Anata no Machi de Love Live!~ (Love Live! In Your Town!) event.

In 2010, the anime studio Sunrise, Lantis, and ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G Magazine launched Love Live! as a self-described "ultimate user-participation project" which lets its fans vote on the future of the fictional idols. A series of music CDs and animated music videos then followed. The members of the project announced in 2012 that an full anime series has been green-lit for last year. The second season of the anime was announced last June.

Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan, and NIS America has licensed both seasons for North American release.
