It’s been a while since we heard about the new Overlord anime film, which was first announced back in 2021. According to a television special about the project, the feature is currently penciled in to open in Japan sometime in 2024.

The special was hosted by cast members Satoshi Hino (Ains), Yumi Hara (Albedo) and Masayuki Katou (Demiurge), who took the opportunity to show off some fresh footage from the film.

Beyond that, details remain light, so we’ll have to stay tuned for more information on the Overlord anime film, which follows a pair of compilation films—Overlord: The Undead King and Overlord: The Dark Warrior—that debuted back in 2017. 

Based on the light novel series by Kugane Maruyama and so-bin, the Overlord anime is directed by Naoyuki Itou and produced at anime studio MADHOUSE. All four seasons are currently streaming on Crunchyroll, which describes it like so:

When a popular MMORPG is scheduled to be shut down permanently, veteran player Momonga refuses to log out. As NPCs begin to develop personalities and minds of their own he decides to put his skills to use as the game’s new overlord.
