Revue Starlight Compilation Film Postponed Due to COVID-19

posted on by Alex Mateo
Film retelling 2018 television anime was slated for May 29

The official website for Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight Rondo Rondo Rondo, the compilation film of the Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight franchise's television anime, announced on Tuesday that the film has been postponed due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The film's production committee will reveal the new release date on the website and franchise's official Twitter account as soon as a decision is made.

The film was slated to open on May 29.

The franchise will also have a separate, brand-new anime film. The staff have not revealed the opening date for that film.

Sentai Filmworks licensed the franchise's earlier television anime, and it describes the story:

After receiving a mysterious invitation to audition for a coveted spot with, Starlight, a popular musical revue troupe, star-struck contestants begin honing their talents and competing against each other for a chance of a lifetime. Among the hopefuls are childhood friends, Karen and Hikari, who once promised each other that they would take the stage together. With each contender working tirelessly hard to win, it's the girls' passionate dedication to their lifelong dream that'll truly transform their performances as the curtains rise.

Bushiroad announced the franchise in April 2017 with a stage musical and television anime project. The musical Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight The LIVE, billed as a "2.5 dimension musical and live concert," ran in Tokyo in September 2017. The 12-episode television anime series premiered in July 2018. Sentai Filmworks streamed the series on HIDIVE with English subtitles and an English dub. The franchise is also inspiring a new mini anime titled Shōjo☆Konto All Starlight (Girl Comedy Skit All Starlight).

Sora Goto and Kanata Nakamura launched Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight Overture, the first manga for the franchise, in Kadokawa's Dengeki G's Comic magazine in January 2018, and ended it in October 2018. The franchise also includes the Butai Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight ―The LIVE― SHOW MUST GO ON and Yonkoma Starlight manga.

Ateam's Revue Starlight Re LIVE smartphone game launched worldwide in April 2019. A third stage musical production will launch this summer.
