The story of The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These continues with a “second season” titled The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These Seiran. However, unlike normal “second seasons”, this won’t be a TV anime, but a series of anime films.
And now, the staff have revealed a new trailer:
The films will be a trilogy, and its official website also revealed the release dates for each of the three films. The first film will premiere on 27th September, the second film on 25th October, and finally, the third film on 29th November. It also confirmed that each film will have a run time equal to four TV anime episodes.
In addition, they also revealed three additional cast members as well:
- Kana Hanazawa as Hildegard von Mariendorf
- Toru Furuya as Flegel
- Issei Futamata as Arthur Lynch
Production I.G. will be producing the three films, with Shunsuke Tada (Kuroko’s Basketball) directing it.
It will be a direct sequel to the first season, The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These Kaikou, which ran in spring 2018 for 12 episodes.
