According to Japanese blogs Esuteru and Yaraon, a recent Chinese Tweet has revealed that the official Youtube channel of Lantis, the Japanese music label for Love Live! School Idol Project, uploaded a video that announced that a Love Live! School Idol Project movie will be coming out way.
The video itself is currently private and no official statement from Sunrise, Lantis or any further word from the Tweeter on the topic has been made. This is currently a rumour so take it as you will.
Love Live! School Idol Project is an original anime produced by Sunrise studios that aired in January 2013. The conception of the anime project started in 2010 by Dengeki G’s Magazine. The editors wanted the project to be heavily influenced by fans, such as the costumes, hairstyles and names. Throughout this process, a manga of the project simply called Love Live! began in early 2012 by Sakurako Kimino and Arumi Tokita. The next part in the project was the anime series, followed by this app and an OVA. The second season of Love Live! School Idol Project started airing earlier this year.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Otonokizaka High School stands on the border of three cities: Akihabara—a pop culture mecca that’s evolving by the minute; Kanda—a conservative, cultured city where history and tradition reign supreme; and Jinbo—a quiet area reserved for a more mature, sophisticated population. Amidst this culture clash, the school now faces closure due to the enrollment of fewer and fewer students.
With the school planning to close within three years, nine female students come together with one thing in mind—form a pop idol group to revive the school’s popularity and keep it from shutting down. “In order to protect our beloved school, there’s only one thing we can do… become pop stars!”
We will update you with further developments on whether the Love Live! School Idol Project Movie is officially announced or denied.
