It’s official! The first animated feature to be released theatrically in 2017, in the US, will be Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side Of Dimensions. Screen Vision Media will give this a two-week release on January 27th.
Supposedly a decade in the making, the film features new designs and an all-new story from the original creator of the 20-year old manga/card-gaming phenomenon, Kazuki Takahashi. This is the fourth Yu-Gi-Oh feature film, following two separate TV series. Playdates, theaters and ticket info can be found here.
Synopsis: The stakes have never been higher; the rivalries never as fierce; the risks never so great. One wrong move—one card short—and it’s game over for good. This masterful tale features anime’s most beloved characters in their long-awaited return: Yugi Muto, Seto Kaiba, and their faithful friends Joey Wheeler, Tristan Taylor Téa Gardner, and Bakura. It’s the most highly anticipated re-YU-nion ever!
