The film is directed by Yuichiro Hirakawa and written by Noriko Goto. The pair worked together in the same roles on the live-action ERASED film.

Meanwhile, the second season of the Promised Neverland anime is set to hit screens in January 2021. Amazon is also developing a live-action English-language series.

Here’s how Viz describes the original Promised Neverland manga:

Emma, Norman and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as “Mom,” all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learn—what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing.

Looking forward to the Promised Neverland film?
