The Seven Deadly Sins are now complete in the TV anime, and now, they’re getting their own feature-length film! Titled “The Seven Deadly Sins the Movie: Prisoners of the Sky”, the film will premiere in August, and the staff just announced that none other than Nogizaka46 will be performing its theme song! They’re performing the song, “Sora Tobira” (Sky Door) for the film, and the staff previewed it in a new trailer:

But that’s not all, because the anime’s official website also stated that mangaka Nakaba Suzuki is giving fans who watch the film a special treat. Specifically, this is for those who buy the advance tickets, as well as the manga’s volume 33 from 7net . According to the website, those who purchase both items will be getting a special 16-page storybook from the mangaka himself. The short storybook will tell of  the “day of that incident 10 years ago”.

The staff previously revealed that mangaka Nakaba Suzuki himself wrote a completely new and original story for the movie. The film will follow Melodias and the Seven Deadly Sins as they battle the Knights of the Black and a ferocious monster to save the Sky Palace.
