Funimation revealed domestic theatrical plans for Violet Evergarden the Movie earlier today, lining the Kyoto Animation feature up for screenings in select theaters in the United States and Canada on March 30. Pre-sale tickets go live on March 19, with more details to come in the near future.
Here’s how Funimation describes the feature:
The movie concludes Violet’s story as a young woman and former child soldier reintegrating into society after the war who searches for her life’s purpose. Employed as an Auto Memory Doll hired to write other people’s thoughts into letters, Violet seeks to understand the meaning of the words “I love you,” said to her by Major Bougainvillea, the person she held dearest and lost during the War’s final days. Violet Evergarden the Movie is the final chapter in Violet’s story as she discovers that while writing the emotions of others, she may have neglected her own. When a terminally ill boy requests her services for his family, her own feelings about love and loss resurface. Now she must confront her past and the death of the Major.
COVID-19 guidelines vary from one region to the next, so be sure to check in with yours and use your best judgment if you decide to venture out to theaters to see Violet Evergarden the Movie.
