Porno Graffitti created the new song specifically for the film. The "rival" in the title is in the French or Spanish pronunciation of the term, and it signifies the contentious relationship between the titular detective lead Conan Edogawa and the phantom thief Kaitō Kid.

Kobun Shizuno is returning to direct the film, and Takeharu Sakurai is writing the script. Katsuo Ono is again to composing the music. Minami Takayama is reprising her role as Conan Edogawa with Wakana Yamazaki as Ran Mōri, Rikiya Koyama as Kogorō Mōri, and Kappei Yamaguchi as Kaito Kuroba/Kaitō Kid.

The films story centers on Conan as he tries to track down Kaito Kid, who is supposedly steals a replica of one of Van Gogh's Sunflowers paintings during an auction. (A real version of the painting depicted was owned by a Japanese collector, until it was destroyed during World War II. A version of the painting depicted in the movie was recently recreated.) The tagline on the announcement image for the film, which was drawn by original manga creator Gosho Aoyama, reads "You will solve this? This art..."

The 18th Detective Conan film opened in April of last year, and the 20th anniversary special premiered on December 26. A new anime series based on Gosho Aoyama's Magic Kaito manga began airing in October.

Update: TOHO made the original video private, and released the same video again on April 17. The new video has been embedded.
