The official website for the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha anime film project revealed a Comic Market 93 promotional video and key visual for the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Detonation film on Friday. The video features the theme song "Invisible Heat" performed by Nana Mizuki.

The film will open in Japan in 2018.

The website also began streaming a promotional video for the DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of the first film, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection, which will ship on April 11. The release will bundle a priority ticket lottery serial code for the "Lyrical☆Party VI" event, which will be held at the Musashino Forest Sport Plaza in Tokyo on May 13.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection opened in Japan on July 22. Eleven Arts announced earlier this month that it will screen the film in U.S. theaters on February 9, 2018. Screenings will be in Japanese with English subtitles. The company previously announced plans to screen the film this winter.

In the story, a pair of researchers stay behind on their dying planet of Eltoria with their two daughters, Amitie and Kyrie, in hopes of finding a way to revive the planet. But when the husband Grants falls ill it seems their dream of reviving the planet will die. Against her older sister's wishes, Kyrie sets off with her childhood friend Iris to seek help from a distant alternate world. They arrive in Japan on Earth to search for the key to their planet's regeneration. There, they meet Nanoha Takamachi, Fate T. Harlaown, and Hayate Yagami.

Masaki Tsuzuki, the franchise creator and scriptwriter, is credited with the original work, and also penned the script. Takayuki Hamana (The Prince of Tennis, Library War, Appleseed XIII) directed the film at Seven Arcs Pictures. Kana Hashidate (Dog Days) drew the character designs, and Shochiku is distributing the film. Nana Mizuki performed the film's theme song "Destiny's Prelude."
