Yuri on Ice Movie Reveals 2019 Release Date and Staff Details

Yuri on Ice Movie Key Visual

As reported here a couple of days ago, late last night/early this morning there was a special Yuri on Ice concert held in Osaka, Japan that came complete with the news that we’ve been waiting for.

We can finally reveal that the new Yuri on Ice movie (titled Yuri on Ice the Movie: Ice Adolescence) that we’ve been promised for many months now will be released in 2019. Additionally, we know that most of the crew will be returning to fill the roles that made this series such a special treat, including Sayo Yamamoto as director and series compositioner.

Originally a TV series released in October 2016, the series swept the globe in positivity thanks to an infectiously inspirational opening theme song and a story that was both entertaining and captivating.

In the series, the main character is a down-on-his-luck figure skater from Japan named Yuri Katsuki. After bombing out of his recent competitions, a sneaky practice video is released of him performing a routine made famous by his idol, Victor Nikiforov. Thanks to the video, the star skater comes to Japan and becomes Yuri’s new coach.

If you missed out on this series when it first aired and haven’t gone out of your way to check it out for whatever reason, I urge you to go do so right this second, and then come back to leave a comment thanking me for pushing you in the right direction.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available!

The movie announcement is so close you could kiss it!

Yuri on Ice fans, get ready to set your alarm clocks!

By this point, I think most of us are aware that Yuri on Ice is getting a brand new movie that will presumably pick up where the TV series left off. I think some of us were also aware that a big announcement was planned for this weekend.

Last night, however, the staff behind this series announced something big to coincide with that planned announcement. A special concert titled Yuri!! on Concert will be performed in Osaka, Japan and it is going to be streamed for free worldwide on YouTube; A major announcement is planned for the end of the show.

The concert will start at 6 pm Japan Standard Time on July 1 (which means it starts at 2 am Pacific/5 am Eastern). Be prepared to either stay up late with coffee or get up early because this is a show that you will not want to miss if you’re a fan of the series!

Do you plan on watching this show? I have every intention of at least trying to stay up for this one, so if anyone wants to turn the comments section of this article into a viewing party, sound off and let’s make it happen!
