Film opened in Japan on July 15; Sentai Filmworks has licensed film

Kadokawa began streaming an English-subtitled long promotional video on Friday for its upcoming No Game, No Life Zero film. Kadokawa had screened the trailer originally at Anime Expo earlier this month. The promotional video previews Konomi Suzuki's theme song "There is a Reason."

The film opened in Japan on July 15 and opened at #7 on the Japanese box office. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the film for North America, and it describes the story:

Six thousand years before Sora and Shiro were even a blink in the history of Disboard, war consumed the land, tearing apart the heavens, destroying stars, and even threatening to wipe out the human race. Amid the chaos and destruction, a young man named Riku leads humanity toward the tomorrow his heart believed in. One day, in the ruins of an Elf city, he meets Shuvi, a female exiled "Ex-machina" android who asks him to teach her what it means to have a human heart.

Although the film features the same main cast members as the previous television anime, many of them are credited as characters who lived six millennia before Sora and Shiro came into the alternate world. However, the film's latest visual (pictured below) shows returning characters, including Sora and Shiro.

The film stars:

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Riku, the young leader of a human enclave

Ai Kayano as Shuvi, a mechanized girl who meets Riku

Yōko Hikasa as Corone Dora, a girl from Riku's enclave and the self-proclaimed sister-in-law of Riku

Yukari Tamura as Jibril, a girl of the Flügel race

Yuka Iguchi as Nonna Zell, a girl from Riku's enclave

Mamiko Noto as Shinku Nilvalen, the head of the noble Elf family Nilvalen

Other cast members include Miyuki Sawashiro as Izuna Hatsuse and Rie Kugimiya as Teto.

Atsuko Ishizuka returned from the television anime series to direct the film at Madhouse. Jukki Hanada also returned to handle the script, and Satoshi Tasaki designed the characters. Kazuhiro Hocchi drew concept art. Eiji Iwase returned as art director, and Tsukasa Ohira also reprised the background art setting role. Yoshiaki Fujisawa composed the music.
