Precure Miracle Universe Film's Trailer Streamed
posted on by Karen Ressler
The official Precure YouTube channel began streaming a trailer for Eiga Precure Miracle Universe, the newest movie in the franchise, on Friday. The trailer reveals that Etsuko Kozakura (Yo-kai Watch's Jibanyan) will voice the film-original character Piton. The video also previews the film's ending theme song, "Win Kuru! Miracle Universe ☆" by Rie Kitagawa.
The film will open in Japan on March 16.
The new film will be primarily set in space, and the story will reveal the secret of the "Miracle Lights," the mysterious critical items which appear frequently in the franchise's films. (The lights are distributed to children attending theatrical screenings.) Characters from Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode, Hugtto! Precure, and the newly announced Star ☆ Twinkle Precure will star in the film.
Kōhei Kureta and Yukio Kaizawa, who both co-directed the Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode series, are returning to co-direct the film. Isao Murayama (Eiga Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode: Paris to! Omoide no Mille-Feuille!, Maho Girls Precure!) is penning the script. Yuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia) and Asami Tachibana (DARLING in the FRANXX) are composing the music.
The currently airing Precure (Pretty Cure) series, Hugtto! Precure, premiered in February 2018. Star ☆ Twinkle Precure will premiere on ABC and TV Asahi on February 3 at 8:30 a.m. (the same timeslot as the current series).
Futari wa Precure is streaming with English subtitles on Crunchyroll and Tubi TV. Saban Brands localized two other Precure series — Smile Precure! and Dokidoki! Precure — under the titles Glitter Force and Glitter Force Doki Doki and released them on Netflix. The Glitter Force brand has since moved to Hasbro.
