Sentai Filmworks describes the series:
Originally developed as an alternate universe to mega hit series Fate/stay night, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya now stands on its own as a bona fide hit and fan-favorite franchise. In the latest feature film installment, its most beloved characters face completely unexpected situations! The Ainsworth family aims to save the world, but the price is sacrifice of magical girl Miyu — but Miyu's brother, Shirou, won't let them have her without a fight. Now it's up to Illya to step in and find a solution that will save not only Miyu, but the entire world.
The film will premiere in Japan on August 27.
Minami Kuribayashi is performing the theme song "Just the truth."
