The official website of the Sound! Euphonium (Hibike! Euphonium) anime project began streaming the first full trailer for the 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 Saturday.

The film's first teaser debuted in December, followed by a 15-second version in January.

Participating theaters in Japan will begin selling the second wave of advance tickets on Sunday. While supplies last, people who purchase tickets will receive one of three reversible B2-size posters (shown below).

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. A separate sequel television anime series will depict what happens afterward.

The spring 2015 television anime adapts 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 series on Crunchyroll as it aired in Japan. Pony Canyon USA will release the television anime in North America.
