The official website of Kyoto Animation’s upcoming feature-length film “Violet Evergarden The Movie” has announced that the long-awaited theatrical adaptation of Kana Akatsuki’s award-winning novel will be getting an 18th September 2020 release date in Japan.

Initially slated for release in 10th January 2020, the release date was pushed back to 24th April 2020 after the arson attack on Kyoto Animation’s Studio 1 in July 2019. The release date was once again postponed in light of measures to stem the spread of COVID-19 in Japan.

All tickets to both the January and April screening dates will be honoured in September.
