The highly anticipated anime film from P.A. WORKS is due for a Spring 2020 cinema opening in Japan, and will have Aoi Miyamori and her friends creating yet another anime.
SHIROBAKO the film, aka Gekijō-ban Shirobako, is being made by most of the same staff and cast members of the original series, so you can expect to be able to enjoy just what you loved about the original.
The people that have returned to the project include director Tsutomu Mizushima, character designer Ponkan8, and key voice actors Juri Kimura as Aoi Miyamori, Haruka Yoshimura as Ema Yasuhara, Haruka Chisuga as Shizuka Sakaki, Asami Takano as Misa Tōdō and Hitomi Ohwada as Midori Imai.

If you haven’t seen that yet, and are in North America, you can watch it on Crunchyroll.
