Cai Chang posts Chinese-subtitled teaser video

Taiwanese film distributor Cai Chang began streaming a Chinese-subtitled teaser video for Kyoto Animation's Violet Evergarden: The Movie anime film on Sunday. The video confirms the film's screening in Taiwan, but the film will open on May 15 instead of May 1.

The film will open in Japan on April 24. The film was originally slated for January 10, 2020 before being delayed. Singer TRUE will return to perform the film's theme song "WILL."

The franchise's separate side-story anime, titled Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll (Violet Evergarden Gaiden: Eien to Jidō Shuki Ningyō), opened in theaters in Japan last September, and it screened for at least five weeks. The film eventually earned a cumulative total of 641,980,500 yen (about US$5.98 million). Netflix will debut the anime on April 2.

The anime held its world premiere as planned at the AnimagiC convention in Mannheim, Germany last August. The AnimagiC organizers said that they continued the screening "at the express request of the studio."

Kyoto Animation's television anime adaptation of author Kana Akatsuki and illustrator Akiko Takase's Violet Evergarden novels premiered on television in Japan and on Netflix in some territories in January 2018. The anime launched on Netflix in the United States in April 2018.
