Hanazawa also performs song within "Pumpkin Ōkoku no Takaramono" part of 3-part film

The staff of the upcoming Eiga Go! Princess Precure Go! Go!! Gōka 3-bon Date!!! (Go! Princess Precure: Go! Go!! Grand 3-Part Movie!!!) film announced the cast of new characters for the "Pumpkin Ōkoku no Takaramono" (The Pumpkin Kingdom's Treasure) part of the film on Friday.

Kana Hanazawa (Psycho-Pass' Akane Tsunemori, Tokyo Ghoul's Rize Kamishiro) as Princess Pampururu

Chō (Yuuichi Nagashima) (One Piece's Brook, Yamato 2199's Analyzer) as the King

Kaori Yamagata (Katanagatari's Oshidori, Yes! Precure 5 GoGo!'s Anakondi) as the Queen

In addition, the staff announced that the heroine of each of the three film parts will perform a song within the story. Hanazawa will perform a song for the first part "Pumpkin Ōkoku no Takaramono." 11-year old Hinata Uegaki (young Nala in Shiki Theatre Company's Osaka stage production of The Lion King and the winner of Kanjani no Shiwake Eight's "Musical Kids No. 1" competition) — who plays Princess Refi in the second part "Precure to Refi no Wonder Night!" in her first voice acting role — will perform a song for the second part.

The film will be the magical girl franchise's first to have three parts. Since the film will open on Halloween, each of the three parts will have a Halloween theme. Producer Takashi Washio described the three parts as "an emotional epic adventure of high stakes, a full-CG nonstop action story, and a full-CG SD character piece."

The movie's official website previously streamed a trailer for the film in July.

"Pumpkin Ōkoku no Takaramono" (The Pumpkin Kingdom's Treasure) will be a cel-style anime in which the Precure girls set off to rescue a kidnapped princess. The story begins when Haruka and her friends are wrapped in a mysterious light and travel to the Pumpkin Kingdom.

Musical duo Every Little Thing (Inuyasha, Initial D: Third Stage, Pokémon the Movie: Black - Victini and Reshiram) will contribute the theme song for the "Pumpkin Ōkoku no Takaramono" movie.

"Precure to Refi no Wonder Night!" (Precure and Refi's Wonder Night!) will be a full-CG anime. In this story, the Pump Kingdom lost its daytime, and the Precure girls fight alongside the kingdom's Princess Refi to take back daytime.

Finally, the "Cure Flora to Itazura Kagami" (Cure Flora and the Vain Mirror) CG anime will be the franchise's first short story with no dialogue. The part will feature super-deformed characters. Cure Flora (as a CG character) will interact with a playful spirit who dwells within a mirror.

Go! Princess Precure, the 12th Precure television anime series, premiered in February. The most recent Precure film, Eiga Precure All Stars: Haru no Carnival (Precure All Stars the Movie: Spring Carnival), opened on March 14.
