Fans of Aqours’ musical journey will reunite with the idol unit early next year. During a live concert performance, it was shared that Love Live! Sunshine!! The School Idol Movie Over the Rainbow will debut on January 4, 2019.
Sunrise and Lantis are keeping mum about the movie’s details, but they confirmed that it won’t be a compilation or a recap. More details might be shared at the “Love Live! ~Sailing to the Sunshine~” concerts in November.
Love Live! Sunshine!! is the latest installment in the highly popular Love Live! idol franchise. Sunshine!! centers around Chika Takami, a girl living in the quiet seaside town of Uchiura. She fell in love with school idols after taking a trip to Tokyo and is inspired by µ’s to create a group for her school.
Love Live! began in 2010 as a “user participation project” led by anime studio Sunrise, music producer Lantis, and publisher ASCII Media Works. The first Love Live! anime aired in 2013 and concluded with a movie in 2015.
