Film opened in Japan last September, ranked in top 10 for 11 weeks

Indonesian cinema chain CGV Cinemas Indonesia posted an English- and Indonesian-subtitled trailer on Tuesday for Purple Plan's screening of Violet Evergarden -Finale-, Kyoto Animation's Violet Evergarden: The Movie anime film. The trailer does not reveal a release date for the film in Indonesia.

The film has earned a cumulative total of 1,912,896,400 yen (about US$18.31 million) after 13 weeks at the Japanese box office. The film has consistently ranked in the Japanese box office's top 10 in its first 11 weeks since its opening.

The film opened in Japan on September 18, and it ranked at #2 in its opening weekend. The film is the first new Japanese anime film (as opposed to compilation films) to open in Dolby Cinemas, with Dolby Cinemas screenings beginning on November 13.

Kyoto Animation postponed the film's opening in Japan due to concerns over the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The film was slated to open in Japan on April 24. This was the second delay for the film, as it was originally slated for a January 10, 2020 opening in Japan.

The franchise's separate side-story anime, titled Violet Evergarden I: Eternity and the Auto Memory 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 831 million yen (about US$7.90 million). Netflix debuted the anime on April 2.
