It also features battle sequences with Ichigo Kurosaki (Sōta Fukushi), Renji Abarai (Taichi Saotome), and Byakuya Kuchiki (MIYAVI).

The film will open in Japan on July 20, and will have its North American premiere on July 28 at the Japan Cuts Festival in New York.

Warner Bros. previously streamed videos highlighting Ichigo, Rukia, Uryū, Byakuya, Renji, and the Hollows.

Shinsuke Satō (live-action Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer films, Oblivion Island anime film) is directing the film. Aside from the theme song, [ALEXANDROS] is also performing the film's featured song "MILK."

The story will center on the "Substitute Shinigami Arc," the manga's first arc that ran from its first to eighth volume.

Kubo launched Bleach in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2001, and ended it in August 2016. Viz Media published the manga in North America digitally in English as Shueisha published new chapters in Japan. Viz Media is also publishing the manga in print.
