Well today we’re delighted to announce that we (Anime Ltd.) have acquired the rights to the 10th Anniversary three film project of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

From the studio that brought you Mobile Suit Gundam and Cowboy Bebop
Synopsis: “In a world dominated by the Holy Empire of Britannia, most of the globe has been conquered and forced into submission by this behemoth of a superpower. Japan, now renamed Area 11 after its defeat at the hands of the Empire, continues to harbour pockets of seemingly futile resistance that seems powerless in the face of the might before them. Enter Lelouch Lamperouge, an exiled Britannian prince hidden away under a false name in Area 11 – harbouring a deep hatred for the empire which has forsaken him, he grabs the chance to fight back when a mysterious power known as “Geass” is bestowed upon him, and begins working from the shadows to bring Britannia to its knees as the faceless leader of Area 11’s resistance.”
Duration: 135 mins
Language: Japanese with English subtitles
It’s worth noting this film project has reunited the staff of the original series to bring the story to the big screen. There are some newly added scenes and the voices have been re-recorded as well to truly make this a unique experience for all fans.
Also worth noting the film is in Japanese with English subtitles only, as there is no English dub for the film.
Check out the trailer for the film below:
It’s worth noting that while we have acquired the rights to all three films, we don’t know if there will be an opportunity to bring the second and third films to the cinema – it’s too early to tell and there will be many factors to weigh up as well.
But we didn’t want to pass up on the chance to bring fans the first film is being screened for one night only, on Wednesday 21st March 2018. Head on over to http://codegeassfilm.co.uk/ to see where it’s being screened!
We hope your excited to see this as much as we are!
Signing out ~!
