Spoiler (highlight the following white text to read the plot summary of the film) [The story of the film begins after the events of the second season, at the graduation ceremony of the third-year students. Knowing that the graduation of the third-year members means the end of μ's, the nine girls take a walk around the school filled with memories. However, when the students attempt to leave the school gates, a single email is sent to them, and the curtain on a new story for μ's begins.]

The film will premiere in Japan on June 13. The first round of special pre-reserve tickets will have one of ten special illustrations on both the ticket, as well as a bonus clear file folder. The special tickets went on sale February 7 at various movie theaters across Japan.

The film will feature the return of the cast of all nine idols. Much of the staff will also return, with Takahiko Kyōgoku directing the anime at Sunrise with character designs by Yūhei Murota. Jukki Hanada will handle scripts, and Erika Okazaki and Yasunao Moriyasu will serve as art directors. Yoshiaki Fujisawa will once again compose the music.

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 the following year. The second season of the anime was announced in June 2013.

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