The movie will be in three parts and the first part will be out sometime in June of 2020.
The movie is available for free on the online service at first, which may seem unimpressive and less than satisfying. But the popularity of the Japanese animation can really sink in when a new viewer sees it. What makes this movie different is the intense fan following of this anime that grew up with the streaming of the Lost Girls.
