Like the six previous Precure All Stars films, the film will feature the characters from all Precure television series. In the story, the Precure visit Harmonia, the country of song and dance.

Junji Shimizu will direct the film, Mio Inoue will write the screenplay, and Yasuharu Takanashi will provide the soundtrack. The film is slated to open in Japan on March 14.

Yu Shimamura (Gundam Reconguista in G's Aida Surugan) plays the Go! Princess Precure heroine Haruka Haruno, a first-year student at Noble Academy. Even now, she has cherished a dream of becoming a princess, like those from her cherished picture books.

Masumi Asano (Ikki Tousen's Hakufu Sonsaku) plays Minami Kaidō, a second-year student and the student council president nicknamed the "school princess." She also happens to transform into the sea princess Cure Mermaid.

Hibiku Yamamura (Arpeggio of Blue Steel's Haruna) plays Kirara Amanogawa, Haruka's classmate who is a popular model and the star princess Cure Twinkle.

Nao Tōyama (Nisekoi - False Love's Chitoge Kirisaki) and Shiho Kokido (My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy's Daiko Gondo) play Pafu and her older brother Aroma — fairies who came from Hope Kingdom in search of the Princess Precures.

Shinnosuke Tachibana plays Kanata. Long ago, Haruka made a promise with this boy to never give up her dream of becoming a princess. He happens to be Prince Hope Grand Kanata from the Hope Kingdom.

The keyword of the new series is "princess," and the source of the Precures' power is "dreams." The story is set in Noble Academy, the first boarding junior high school in the Precure franchise. The anime depicts the excitement of dorm life, coming of age while living with friends, and the anticipation and anxiety of a new life among roommates, separated from family.

One day, the "Princess Precures" were revived by the Princess Perfume (and Kanata's dress-shaped "Dress-Up Key" that unlocks the Princess Perfume's power), and Haruka transforms into the flower princess Cure Flora. When unleashing their special signature moves, the Princess Precures' outfits turn into magnificent princess-like Mode Elegant long dresses.

Yūta Tanaka, an episode director who worked on the franchise since Suite Precure, is serving as the series director of the new anime. Jin Tanaka is in charge of the series scripts. The 2014 Miss Universe Japan competition's Nara representative Karin Isobe is performing the opening theme song "Miracle Go! Princess Precure," and stage musical actress Rie Kitagawa is performing the ending theme "Dreaming Princess Precure."
