A Black Clover Movie is in the works. This was announced earlier this year along with a teaser trailer. Japanese publisher Shueisha Inc announced this in its manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump. The anime series recently ended with a total of 170 episodes. However, with the manga still ongoing, the fans got anxious about its future. Has the show had ended altogether or is on a temporary hiatus is anyone’s guess. However, with the announcement of the first Black Clover movie, fans have something to look forward to.
Black Clover Movie Release Date
There is no official release date set for the movie as of yet. The Black Clover Movie may be released in Japan in mid-2022. Furthermore, the worldwide release could be pushed by the Fall of 2022. The announcement for the movie came just a few days before the anime series came to an end on March 30, 2021.
While we can reasonably expect the movie to come out by next year, there are many factors to consider. Especially, the pace of the manga. Black Clover has been notorious for its slow release of manga chapters. The movie-makers will also have to consider what parts of manga they will be adopting for the film.
Black Clover Movie Teaser Trailer
Jump Comics Channel dropped a teaser for the Black Clover movie on March 28th, 2021 along with the movie’s announcement. It showcases a few manga panels and art designs. However, it doesn’t indicate what we could expect the movie to be about.
The 1 minute 9 seconds video hints at the massive popularity the anime has managed to garner. Indeed, the fans seem to be very excited about the movie. You can check out the teaser below.
Black Clover The Anime
Black Clover is set in a universe where magic is present in every aspect of everyone’s life. Living in the Clover Kingdom, Asta is a young orphan with no magic powers. However, he is determined to become the Wizard King, the strongest man in the kingdom. Incidentally, this is also the dream of Asta’s childhood mate from the orphanage, Yuno. Yuno happens to be a prodigy when it comes to magical powers. However, this doesn’t stop the two friends from competing with each other running towards the same goal.
As the two keep making strides towards their dream, they make many friends and encounter many enemies along the way.
What Will The Black Clover Movie Be About
The Black Clover Anime ends at an intriguing Cliffhanger. Towards the end of the anime, the clover kingdom has come to discover that there’s a demon inside Asta’s body. Asta vows to clear his name by finishing the demon named Megicula. Naturally, the Black Bulls decide to join Asta in his fight.
The movie might work towards finishing the Spade Kingdom Raid Arc. With the recent popularity of the Demon Slayer: Mugen Train movie, this seems to be the most likely path that Black Clover will take. However, the Spade Kingdom Arc is still ongoing in the manga. This might cause some delay in the making and release of the Black Clover Movie.
Where To Watch The Black Clover Movie
As we mentioned earlier, the manga is still under works. Hence, the movie might take some time before it gets made. Moreover, given the threat of the still ongoing global pandemic, the movie might take longer than usual before it hits the screens.
Even so, after the initial release of the movie in Japan, it might take 3-4 months before it gets released in the US. In the meantime, the Black Clover anime is available on Netflix, Crunchyroll and Funanimation.
