Japanese film distributor GAGA have revealed that the previously announced 2nd anime film of Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail manga will be titled Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry. The company has also opened a website for the film that reveals that the movie will be released in Japan this Spring.
A second anime film was announced in a May 2015 issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine. The first film in the series, Fairy Tail: Houou no Miko (Fairy Tail the Movie: Phoenix Priestess), released in Japanese theatres in August 2012.
Mashima revealed in late 2016 that he is directly working on a new anime project.
Fairy Tail is a fantasy, action manga series written and illustrated by Hiro Mashima, being his second major publication after RAVE. The series has been published in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine since 2006, where a total of 48 volumes have been produced to date. Over the last few years, the series has grown in popularity, being the fourth highest selling manga in 2011. An anime adaptation of Fairy Tail started airing in 2009 and ended on March 30 2013, produced by A-1 Pictures (Aldnoah.Zero, AnoHana). A continuation of the anime, Fairy Tail (2014) launched in April last year with largely the same production staff and cast. 6 OVAs have been released thus far and a feature film, Fairy Tail: Houou no Miko, that was released in August 2012. The series also has its own monthly magazine, among other spin-offs.
If you are interested in the series, here is a synopsis from MAL:
Set in an imaginary world, the Earth Land, there exists a Mage Guild called “Fairy Tail”. Fairy Tail is stationed in the town Magnolia, residing in the Kingdom of Fiore, and is currently governed by Makarov, Guild’s master. Lucy Heartfilia, a 17-year-old girl, wishes to become a full-fledged mage and join one of the most prestigious Mage Guilds in the world, Fairy Tail. One day, out of pure coincidence, she meets Natsu Dragneel, a boy who is transportation-sick, but very cheerful in nature. However, the thing she does not know is that Natsu is the closest connection to Fairy Tail, as he is a Mage in Fairy Tail.
A second Fairy Tail anime film, Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry, is currently in production for Spring 2017. Further information about the movie will be revealed in the upcoming weeks.
