Third Kingdom Film Gets Drops Trailer, Hikaru Utada Theme SongGood news for fans of the live-action Kingdom film series: the trailer for the third film is out, and it features a theme song by none other than Hikaru Utada.

The song is called “Gold ~Mata Au Hi Made~” (“Gold: Until We Meet Again”). The film debuts in Japan in July 28, and features the manga’s Battle of Bayou.

The film reunites the cast and crew of the first two films and adds cast members Anne Watanabe, Kataoka Ainosuke VI, Koji Yamamoto, Yuki Yamada, Eri Murakawa and Hinako Sakurai.

Here’s our review of the first film from way back in 2019, and here’s how Funimation described it:

Orphaned by war, a young boy and his friend dream of changing their fate and becoming the world’s greatest generals. And after his friend sacrifices himself to protect
the future emperor, the young boy’s path to greatness is set in motion. Helping the King reclaim the throne puts the boy’s blade to the ultimate test as they go against deadly assassins, large armies, and the dangerous mountain clan. In a country torn apart by war, only they can fight to unite the warring states!

Who’s looking forward to the third Kingdom film?
