Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection is an anime film, which serves as a sequel to the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion television anime and its compilation film trilogy.
The story is set two years after the “Zero Requiem” storyline, which will be told in one film, making the anime film the story’s finale.
The staff from the Code Geass television anime series, including director Goro Taniguchi, scriptwriter Ichirou Okouchi and character designer Takahiro Kimura, returned to work on the movie, which was produced by anime studio Sunrise and distributed by Showgate.
Jun Fukuyama, who leads the popular franchise as “Lelouch vi Britannia”, returned to work on the anime film, together with Yukina (as C.C.) and Takahiro Sakurai (as Suzaku Kururugi).
Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection opened in 120 theaters in Japan last February 9, which has earned JP¥286.65 million (about PHP132.36 million) during its opening weekend, which put them at Number 5 in the Japanese box office.
The film has since earned a cumulative total of over JP¥1 billion (over PHP462 million) in the Japanese box office last March.
Philippine film distributor Pioneer Films has announced last month that they will screen the anime film in local cinemas, but has yet to announce a definite screening date.
The film is being distributed in North American theaters through Funimation Films, which was screened in Japanese Audio with English subtitles last Sunday, May 5, and it is set to release an English-dubbed version on May 7-8.
