Fans in Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Malaysia, brace yourselves, because Odex Private Ltd. has announced that Sword Art Online the Movie Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night is coming to Southeast Asia! It will arrive in the region later this year.

The Facebook pages for Odex Philippines and Odex Vietnam, as well as the main Odex Private Ltd. page for Singapore have changed their cover photos to the movie’s visual. Unfortunately, they did not reveal any further details on the Southeast Asian release yet.

As for its Japanese release, it will hit theatres in Autumn 2021.

Sword Art Online Progressive is a retelling of the Aincrad arc, the first storyline in the light novel series. Reki Kawahara wrote them himself, with each floor getting its own story. As for the movie itself, it adapts the first book in the series. More specifically, the first chapter of the first book of the light novels.

Ayako Kawano will be directing the movie, with Kento Toya returning as character designer. Expect the staff to reveal more details in the days to come.
