The Black Clover anime has ended with episode 170, but with a movie being officially confirmed, what date the film could release?
For many fans, this week was meant to be one of despair with the finales of Attack on Titan, Dr Stone, Jujutsu Kaisen and Black Clover.
However, hope has been restored to the community, with confirmation that Attack on Titan would return for season 4 part, Dr Stone season 3 is in the works and both Jujutsu Kaisen and Black Clover would receive anime movies.
So, what date should fans expect the Black Clover film to release and what do we know so far about the cast and plot for the upcoming movie?
Black Clover movie: Release date
- At the time of writing, a release date for the Black Clover movie has not been confirmed but is expected to premiere in late-2021 or early-2022.
Despite an official release date remaining unknown, an early prediction is that the untitled movie will debut in either late-2021 or early-2022.
Anime movies typically take between 9 and 12 months to premiere after being revealed. Two recent examples being Demon Slayer: Mugen Train (12 months) and My Hero Academia’s upcoming World Heroes’ Mission (9 months).
Whilst a December 2021 premiere is a possibility, it is more likely that the film will release in early-2022 and build excitement for the return of the series.
Fans should remember that the movie will likely release in Japanese theatres before arriving on streaming platforms for international audiences.
Black Clover movie: Plot and cast
At the time of writing, very little is known about either the plot of the Black Clover movie or the cast of voice actors.
However, the film is expected to finish adapting the Spade Kingdom Raid Arc (the ongoing arc), with the cast from the series reprising their roles.
According to Monsters and Critics, the anime will adapt up to (approximately) chapter 273.
This particular arc is still ongoing (with another 14 chapters currently published), indicating that the Black Clover movie will complete the entire Spade Kingdom Raid arc.
This article will be updated as soon as more information on the Black Clover movie is revealed.
