The Revue Starlight Compilation Film Will Arrive On August 7th After Multiple Delays

Advance ticket passes resell on July 13th, and the CD for the film’s theme song, “Saisei Sanbi-Kyoku” (Playback Hymn), will also go on sale on September 9th, 2020.

That’s right. The official website for Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight Rondo Rondo Rondo (the compilation film of the Shōjo☆Kageki Revue Starlight franchise’s television anime) just announced on Sunday that the film will open in Japan on August 7th. The film was originally intended to open on May 29, but was postponed due to the spread of the coronavirus (or COVID-19), hence the delays.

Interested, but never heard of it? Sentai Filmworks describes it as follows:

After receiving a mysterious invitation to audition for a coveted spot with, Starlight, a popular musical revue troupe, star-struck contestants begin honing their talents and competing against each other for a chance of a lifetime. Among the hopefuls are childhood friends, Karen and Hikari, who once promised each other that they would take the stage together. With each contender working tirelessly hard to win, it’s the girls’ passionate dedication to their lifelong dream that’ll truly transform their performances as the curtains rise.
