    A love letter to the anime industry, the highly anticipated new film SHIROBAKO The Movie (劇場版 SHIROBAKO, Gekijōban Shirobako, 2020) will be released on digital download and on Blu-ray+ DVD combo pack on October 26, 2021 from Eleven Arts and Shout! Factory. The fan-favorite anime about making anime makes its home entertainment debut following a North American theatrical release this summer.

    Bonus features on the Blu-ray + DVD combo pack release include a teaser and trailer never before seen in North America, and a 4-page booklet with stunning character art.
     
    SHIROBAKO The Movie is the eagerly awaited sequel to the television anime series of the same name, which has also been adapted as a manga series. SHIROBAKO The Movie’s director Tsutomu Mizushima (GIRLS UND PANZER, PRISON SCHOOL) and screenwriter Michiko Yokote (NARUTO, COWBOY BEBOP) lend their talents to the movie after working on the beloved series.
     
    Four years after the events of the series, Musashino Animation has gone through drastic changes and things are looking bleak for the studio. One day, Aoi Miyamori is offered a role managing a new theatrical animation project. With only a few months left before the deadline, can MUSANI complete the project in its current state? It’s up to Aoi to work alongside both familiar faces and new to finish the project in time!
