Film will have original story by light novel author Fujino Ōmori

The "GA Bunko 2018 Happyō Stage" presentation at the Wonder Festival event announced on Sunday that Fujino Ōmori and illustrator's Suzuhito Yasuda's Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? light novel series is inspiring a second anime season and an anime film.

The film is titled Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka: Arrow of the Orion (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion).

The presentation revealed the film's first visual, and also revealed that the film will have an original story written by Ōmori.

The Twitter account for GA Bunko had teased last month that the franchise was getting a "new project."

J.C. Staff adapted the novels into a television anime in 2015. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for North America, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

Ōmori and illustrator Kiyotaka Haimura's Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria spinoff light novel series inspired an anime that premiered last April. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime under the title Sword Oratoria: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? On the Side and simulcasted the series in the United States on Amazon's now-defunct Anime Strike streaming service.

Yen Press is releasing both the original novel series and Sword Oratoria, as well as their respective manga adaptations, in North America.

Update: Added announcement video and bigger version of film visual.
