The good folks from anime distribution company Anime Limited have just announced a special one day screening of Violet Evergarden: The Movie across the UK and Ireland. The feature film is due to hit cinemas on Thursday 1st July 2021 for a one day only screening. The film will be available in Japanese with English subtitles.
The movie follows on from the hugely successful series about Violet, a former child soldier turned "Auto Memory Doll" scribe, who travels around the Europeanesque world helping her clients write letters from their heart. During the her adventures Violet's clients learn about themselves and in turn so does Violet.
The series available on Netflix and blu-ray has extraordinarily lavish animation. The movie continues that tradition.
Anime Limited will also be releasing the film on blu-ray and are taking pre-orders now.
We're hugely excited about this film and can't wait to see it.
