The Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale film will premiere at Madman’s Anime Festival in Brisbane on June 10 this year.
The movie follows Kirito and Asuna in a new MMORPG, Ordinal Scale. Like past storylines in the series, the pair soon discover that there’s more to the game than they know: their virtual nightmare begins to spread into reality and it’s up to them to save the real world.
The English voice actor for Sword Art Online’s Asuna and special guest, Cherami Leigh, will host the screening. Leigh’s portfolio includes dubbed roles in Soul Eater (Patty), Fairy Tail (Lucy Heartfilia) and Sailor Moon (Sailor Venus).
She joins other superstar guests, Neon Genesis Evangelion voice actress, Yuko Miyamura (Asuka Langley), and cosplayers: Ying Tze, Orochi X, Pinky Lu Xun and Katyuska Moonfox. Madman Anime Festival will also be hosting the premiere of Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic.
Sword Art Online is available to stream on Animelab.
