The Walküre idol group announced at the "Rock in Japan Festival 2017" event on Sunday that the Macross Delta television anime series is getting an anime film project. The project is the latest work to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Macross franchise. The staff will reveal more information about the film at a later date.
Other projects commemorating the 35th anniversary of Macross include a virtual reality project, a live music concert, and a planetarium project, as well amusement center, projection mapping display, toy, shop, and network projects.
The franchise is also receiving a new television anime series in 2018 to commemorate the anniversary.
The 26-episode Macross Delta television anime series ran from April to September 2016, after a preview of the first episode in 2015.
Macross Delta has also inspired several manga series and a novel. The in-story idol unit Walküre also performs as an idol unit in real life, and the group has held several live events. The group's first album won the Animation Album of the Year award for the Recording Industry Association of Japan's (RIAJ) Japan Gold Disc Awards for 2017.
