Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King coming in March 2023?
Yes, the upcoming movie Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King will be released in March 2023. The release date is planned for March 31, 2023.
There will be no difference in the release date for fans in Japan or anywhere else in the world. The film will debut on Netflix and be accessible for streaming.
A promotional film for the platform was also shared on Twitter and other social media.
In addition to Netflix, the film will even be released through Roadshow. A roadshow release is when a film is simply shown for a really short time in a really small number of theaters in a few large cities. Those who have an interest in watching the film on a big screen must therefore hurry.
What To Expect From This New Movie?
According to the trailer, the protagonist of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King will be Conrad Leto, who served as Wizard King in the past. A glimpse of him carrying a sword, which is presumably a strong weapon given the film’s title, can even be seen in promotional material for the film.
Fans of the Black Clover series can anticipate intense fights, astonishing spells, and an absurd scale of power. The protagonists, Asta and Yuno will be put to the test again, and will do their best to meet the challenge.
Yuki Tabata, the person responsible for the creation of the series, will take part in the film project as a supervisor.
It was decided that Toshihiko Seki would provide voice for Conrad. The voice actors who initially played the main characters, incl Gakuto Kajiwara as Astá, Nobunaga Shimazaki as Yuno, Junichi Suwabe as Yami, Kana Yuki as Noelle, and others, will return to repeat their parts.
Why Did Black Clover Anime Stop?
In March 2021, the Black Clover anime came to an end after about 270 episodes. Since then, it has been suspended indefinitely until further notice. The lack of sources was the primary reason behind this.
It did not take long for the anime to catch up with the manga, so there wasn’t much material left to work with.
The anime has so far covered the events of the manga up to chapter 272. It will take some time to return. The studio is currently devoting all its work to produce a film in 2023, and all efforts are focused on that.
It is hoped that an announcement about the continuation of the anime will be made by the end of 2023.
