120-minute film with theme song by ChouCho premieres in Japan on November 21

Bandai Visual began streaming a new promotional video for the movie edition of Girls und Panzer, the popular anime of girls riding and fighting in tanks, on Sunday. The video has narration by voice actress Mai Fuchigami as Miho, and features the TV anime's opening theme, "DreamRiser" by ChouCho. The video reviews the story from the Girls und Panzer franchise, and a theatrical trailer for the film is scheduled to premiere in June.

The traditional sport of girls, "Senshado" (The Way of the Tank.)

Text: The talked-about anime Girls und Panzer that started the tank boom!
Miho: That's Girls und Panzer!
Text: The heartful tank story, Girls und Panzer.
Miho: This is the story of me, Miho Nishizumi, and the laughable team filled with newbies who aim for victory at the nationals.
Miho: The television series aired from 2012 to 2013, and was a bit hit after bringing attention through its friendship between high school girls and elaborate tanks.
Text: All six volumes of the TV series are currently on sale on Blu-ray and DVD!
Miho: In 2014, the story of the battle against Anzio High School that couldn't be told in the TV series is released as an OVA. With its fast tank battles, it gained even more popularity.
Text: 2014, the OVA is released! "This is the Real Battle of Anzio!"

The film is scheduled to premiere in Japanese theaters on November 21, and ChouCho will perform the theme song. The new film in the Girls und Panzer franchise with an all-original story was announced in 2013, although it was initially planned for release last year. The television anime series' Tsutomu Mizushima is returning to direct the film. Sunday's talk show featured the cast from the television series who are also reprising their roles for the movie.

The anime franchise began with a television series that premiered in 2012. The story centers around high school girls who drive tanks that exist in real life, as they compete in teams. Crunchyroll and Anime Network both streamed the anime outside Japan. An all-new original video anime (OVA) titled "Kore ga Hontō no Anzio-sen Desu!" (This is the Real Anzio Battle!) premiered in Japanese theaters in July, and the anime shipped on DVD and Blu-ray later that month.
