The anime series may have just premiered around the world, but has a release date and cast been confirmed for the live-action movie adaptation of Tokyo Revengers?
The anime adaptation may be one of the standout series of Spring, but there is plenty more Tokyo Revengers content on the horizon.
A live-action movie of Ken Wakui’s hit manga series has been confirmed to be in production, but has a release date and cast been officially confirmed?
Tokyo Revengers movie: Release date
- Tokyo Revengers live-action movie will open in Japan on July 9th, 2021, but an international release date remains unknown.
The live-action adaptation of the hit manga series was officially announced in February 2020.
Tokyo Revengers was meant to open in Japanese theatres in October 2020, but had to be delayed until this summer due to complications associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
In late March, a July 9th release date was confirmed; the problem is that this only concerns Japanese theatres and that an international release date remains unknown.
Assuming the movie will be released via an online streaming platform outside Japan, international fans may have to wait until late-2021 to watch the movie legally online.
The most obvious choice is Netflix for the international broadcast of Tokyo Revengers, who have built excellent relationships with networks in the region over the past few years.
