And now, they have have released a new trailer for the movie:

It also introduces a couple of new cast members as well, like Isabella York (CV: Minako Kotobuki) and Taylor Bartlett (CV: Aoi Yuuki). It also confirmed its September 6 premiere, sending a message to the arsonist that they are unbowed.

Haruka Fujita, who directed several episodes of the Netflix anime, is acting as the movie’s director.
