Fate/stay night [Heaven's Feel] THE MOVIE trilogy follows the third route, known as the “Sakura Route,” of the Fate/stay night visual novel game. Produced by animation studio ufotable (Fate/Zero, Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works], The Garden of Sinners), the film summons an all-star cast including Ayako Kawasumi, Noriaki Sugiyama, Junichi Suwabe, Hiroshi Kamiya, and Noriko Shitaya as the heroine Sakura Matou. Tomonori Sudo (The Garden of Sinners/recalled out summer) is the director and character designer. Renowned composer Yuki Kajiura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Sword Art Online) has also returned to lend her musical talent for the soundtrack. In November of 2018, Japanese rising songstress Aimer revealed the title of the theme song for the film, “I beg you,” at the Fate/stay night [Heaven's Feel] Special Event presented by Aniplex of America, Sony Music Entertainment Japan and Anime NYC.

In their review of Fate/stay night [Heaven's Feel] THE MOVIE II. lost butterfly, Anime News Network writes that the latest film “is even better than the first film,” noting that “presage flower spent a lot of time building up a sense of atmosphere and a foreboding that something is not right, and lost butterfly capitalizes on all of that, delivering an emotional rollercoaster that left me itching to see how the finale plays out.”
