Promare movie

Studio TRIGGER’s big-screen debut, Promare, is heading to the West.

According to GKids’ Twitter, Promare is the first feature-film from the studio behind Gurren Lagann, Little Witch Academia, and Kill la Kill. The film is written by Kazuki Nakashima and directed by Studio TRIGGER founder Hiroyuki Imaishi, with character designs by Shigeto Koyama and music by Hiroyuki Sawano.

Thirty years ago, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings called the Burnish destroyed half the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish,” begins.

There will be a special theatrical event for the movie on Sept. 17 and 19. According to GKids, the Sept. 17 showing will be dubbed, and the Sept. 19 showing will be subbed. Promare opens in select theaters Sept. 20, 2019, in both dubbed and subbed formats.

You can check out the trailer for the movie below.
