Puella Magi Madoka Magica Movies to See US Theatrical Release
In the world of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, strange creatures exist that have the power to grant one wish to chosen girls. In return, they must fulfill a contract to use their new-found magical girl powers to fight the forces of evil.
Touted as “truly subversive, dark, and unique” by Anime News Network, Madoka Magica is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed shows to release in recent years. The anime itself, clocking in at 12 episodes, is very well-paced, despite its long-winded title.
If you’re an American fan fiending for more Madoka, good news! This October, the first two films of the Madoka Magica trilogy will be showing in select locations in the United States. Aniplex has begun streaming the trailer of the two compilation movies that will premiere this October.
The first two films: The Beginning Story (始まりの物語), and The Eternal Story (永遠の物語), will be a retelling of the TV series. However, the third movie will be an all new script penned by Gen Urobuchi.
