The official website for the Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry anime film began streaming a web-only theme song promotional video on Tuesday. The video previews the film's theme song "What You Are" performed by two-member unit POLKA DOTS.

The musical duo is composed of i☆Ris member Himika Akaneya and Mimi Meme MIMI member Yuki Takao. POLKA DOTS previously performed an insert song for the Trinity Seven: Eternal Library & Alchemic Girl anime film.

The film will open in Japan on May 6. It will also open in at least 16 countries besides Japan in May, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, nine countries in Central America and South America, Thailand, and France.

The cast includes:

Tatsuma Minamikawa (episode director for Aldnoah.Zero, Attack on Titan, Haganai NEXT) is directing the film at A-1 Pictures. Shoji Yonemura is returning from the previous two television anime series to write the script, Yuuko Yamada (chief animation director for Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East, Persona 3 the Movie #3 Falling Down) is the character designer and chief animation director, and Yasuharu Takanashi is returning from the previous anime series and Fairy Tail Zero to compose the music. GAGA is distributing the film.

Those who purchase advance tickets for the film in Japan will receive clear files with Mashima's special illustration of Natsu. Theaters showing the film will give viewers a free booklet while supplies last. The booklet contains the rough storyboards for the film that original manga creator Hiro Mashima drew. Mashima drew 193 pages of storyboard for the film, and is also serving as executive producer. Mashima also drew rough sketches for the characters and the key visuals for the film.
