posted on by Jennifer Sherman
V-Cinema announced its Build New World Kamen Rider Grease V-Cinext project as the "final chapter" for the Kamen Rider Build live-action series on Wednesday. The project will have a limited theatrical run this fall before shipping on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on November 27. Toei also began streaming a teaser video for the project.
Kōhei Takeda will return as Kazumi Saruwatari, who transforms into Kamen Rider Grease in the Kamen Rider Build television series. The series' episode director Shōjirō Nakazawa is returning to direct the project, and Shōgo Mutō is returning to write the script.
In addition to the regular DVD and Blu-ray Disc release, a special version will bundle the DX Grease Perfect Kingdom toy (pictured below).
The Kamen Rider Build series premiered in September 2017. In the series, protagonist Sento Kiryū (Kamen Rider Build) is a genius physicist, and he uses the "Build Driver" belt to transform by combining "Full Bottle" ingredients from animals or machines. If the ingredients turn out to be the "best match," the Sento can use his special moves. In the show's story, "Pandora's Box" was found on Mars. Since then, massive walls called "Sky Walls" appeared and divided Japan into three regions now called Tōto, Saito, and Hokuto. In Tōto, unidentified creatures known as "Smash" begin appearing, causing a crisis in the region.
Toei's V-Cinext projects include limited theatrical screenings followed by home video releases. V-Cinema's Kamen Rider Build NEW WORLD: Kamen Rider Cross-Z film debuted in theaters on January 25, and it will ship on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on April 24. The next project in the series, V-Cinema's Lupinranger vs Patranger vs Kyuranger crossover film, will open in Japan for a limited screening on May 3, during Japan's Golden Week holidays. The film will ship on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on August 21.
