The staff of the selector franchise announced on Sunday at a fan event for the franchise that production on a new film has been green-lit.
The staff wrote on Twitter, saying:
We announced this at the event a few moments ago, but production on a selector film has been green-lit! selector isn't ending yet! selector will be in your hands from here on out as well. (*^◯^*)
Warner Bros. is also streaming an announcement trailer for the film. The trailer shows highlights from both Selector Infected Wixoss and Selector Spread Wixoss before showing the following text: "And now a film version has been decided."
The toy and game maker Takara Tomy launched the WIXOSS (pronounced like "wi-cross") card game last April. The Selector Infected Wixoss anime series also premiered last April, followed by a second season, Selector Spread Wixoss, in October. North American anime distributor FUNimation Entertainment streamed both seasons as they aired in Japan.
Update: Announcement trailer added.
