The official website of the Sound! Euphonium (Hibike! Euphonium) anime project began streaming a 15-second teaser for the upcoming Gekijō-ban Hibike! Euphonium: Kitauji Kōkō Suisōraku-Bu e Yōkoso (Sound! Euphonium the Movie: Welcome to the Kitauji High School Concert Band) anime film on Wednesday.

Kyoto Animation is also streaming a commercial for the home video release of the Sound! Euphonium television anime. The seventh and last DVD and Blu-ray volume for the show went on sale last December.

Beginning on December 19, 39 participating theaters began selling advance tickets. While supplies last, those who purchase the tickets also receive one of four randomly distributed clear file folders featuring art of the film's characters (shown below).

The Gekijō-ban Hibike! Euphonium ~ Kitauji Kōkō Suisōraku-Bu e Yōkoso~ film will look back at the spring 2015 television series, which depicted a high school concert band's journey to the prefectural band competition. The film will open in Japan on April 23. The separate sequel project will depict what happens afterward.

The spring 2015 television anime adapted Ayano Takeda's 2013 novel, which is also titled Hibike! Euphonium Kitauji Kōkō Suisōraku-Bu e Yōkoso. The story follows the Kitauji High School Concert Band, which used to always advance to national competitions. Ever since the adviser changed, though, it has not advanced past the Kansai tournament. However, thanks to the newly appointed adviser's strict instruction, the students are steadily improving. The band members' daily lives are full of ups and downs including fights over solos and the decision to resign extracurricular activities to focus on studies.

The television anime premiered last April, and Pony Canyon USA streamed the anime on Crunchyroll as the anime aired in Japan. Pony Canyon USA will also release the anime in North America.
