A feature film edition of Planet Aikatsu! is now in preparation for a summer 2022 release. The news was revealed during the “Sunrise Festival 2021 REGENERATION” event held at Toho Cinemas Shinjuku theater in Tokyo on October 3, 2021. No further details were given, but according to Mantan Web Report, director Ryuichi kimura said: “It’s going to be a really fun movie, so I want to do my best to make everyone happy.”
As the first hybrid Aiktasu idol-themed action and animation TV show! franchise, Planet Aikatsu! aired for 25 episodes in Japan from January 10 to June 27, 2021. The eight main cast of its live-action part formed a STARRY PLANET * unit to perform as idols at events and on YouTube . However, most of the live events they were scheduled to appear at have been canceled due to the COVD-19 pandemic, so it is hoped that the release of this film will give them more opportunities to show their performances in public.
