Code Geass fans rejoice, because Zero is back! And with the hype really high, the staff of the upcoming Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection film has released a new trailer. It introduces a few new characters, as well as reintroduces a few familiar ones. And yes, that includes C.C.! They also unveiled a brand new key visual featuring the new characters as well.

The new cast members for the film include characters from the empire of Jirukustan. They include:

  • Keiko Toda as Shamuna Akio
  • Ohtsuka as Fougunaa
  • Kenjiro Tsuda as Kujapatto
  • Ayumu Murase as Shario

In addition, the staff confirmed that Leo Ieiri is performing the OP song, “Kono Sekai de”, while Unione is doing the ED theme, “Revive”. Meanwhile, Ali Project will be doing the insert song, “Utsukushiki Kemonotachi no Tame no”.

The film will be a stand-alone sequel to Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, and will feature a resurrected Lelouch. The staff have confirmed that this will actually be Lelouch and won’t be an alternate version or a clone. However, one must note that as of writing, they still haven’t announced Lelouch’s seiyuu, Jun Fukuyama, as part of the cast yet. The film takes place after the events of the Zero Requiem. It will open in 129 theatres across Japan on 19 February 2019.
