Film opened on September 13

The BanG Dream! FILM LIVE anime film has sold about 51,000 tickets to earn more than 100 million yen (about US$924,000) at the Japanese box office as of Tuesday.

The film opened in 56 theaters in Japan on September 13. Sanzigen returned to animate the film, and Bushiroad is distributing the film.

Attendees for the movie's second week of screenings (September 20-26) will receive a mini colored paper board featuring Pastel*Palettes members. Poppin' Party members appear on mini colored paper boards from the first week of screenings (September 13-19).

The main BanG Dream! television anime's first 13-episode season premiered in January 2017, and Anime Network Online and Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired in Japan. The anime's second season premiered on January 3. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime, and HIDIVE and Crunchyroll both streamed the series as it aired.

Sentai Filmworks describes the story of the anime's first season:

When she was a child, Kasumi Toyama (played by Poppin' Party's lead singer, Aimi) felt a heart-pounding thrill every time she gazed at the stars, and she's been looking without success for something that could inspire the same feeling ever since. One day, she comes across a star-shaped guitar in a rundown pawnshop and, for the first time, discovers the thrill she's been searching for. Kasumi becomes determined to form an all-girl band, and her search leads her to four like-minded souls: Saya, Arisa, Rimi, and Tae (all brought to life by the members of Poppin' Party). Does this band have what it takes to make their dreams of stardom come true?

The BanG Dream! 3rd Season television anime will debut in January 2020.

The BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! game app inspired DMM.futureworks and Sanzigen's BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! ☆ Pico mini anime, which premiered in July 2018. A spinoff anime titled Pastel Life premiered in May 2018.
