posted on by Kiara Valdez
The official Youtube channel for TMS Entertainment began streaming a promotional video for the newest Anpanman movie, titled Soreike! Anpanman: Mija to Mahō no Lamp (Let's Go! Anpanman: Mija and the Magic Lamp), on April 27. The film will premiere in theaters in Japan on July 4.
The guest character this time is a female magic-user named Mija (voiced by Yuko Oshima), and the theme of the film will be "If we show consideration, we'll be closer to our friends," as well as "If we always combine our efforts and join hands, our feelings will connect." In the film's story, Creampanda and Kokin find a mysterious lamp, but suddenly the magic-user Mija emerges from the lamp. The three use magic to enter inside the lamp, but because a magic bracelet is broken, they cannot return to the real world. Together they must find a magic spring in a far off place to fix the bracelet.
Hiroyuki Yano, who has directed 10 previous Anpanman films, is directing the new film. Tomoko Konparu, who has written the screenplay for eight previous Anpanman films, is writing the film's screenplay.
The anime short that will screen during the film is titled "Rhythm de Utao! Anpanman Natsu Matsuri" (Let's Sing With Rhythm! Anpanman Summer Festival). The staff are producing the short as a work that fans at the cinema can sing along to.
The Soreike! Anpanman television anime series began in 1988, and new Anpanman films have opened each summer since 1989. Last year's Soreike! Anpanman: Ringo Bōya to Minna no Negai (Let's Go! Anpanman: The Apple Boy and Everyone's Wishes) was the first film since Anpanman creator Takashi Yanase's passing.
