The official website for the second Attack on Titan film, Shingeki no Kyojin Movie 2: Jiyuu no Tsubasa / Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom, has revealed that the film will receive a “4D experience” in theaters in Japan this summer. In the 4D version of the film, theatergoers will see movement all around their seats, not just on the screen. Effects such as wind, water, and flashes will operate in accordance with the film. The first compilation film also had 4D screenings.
The movie will feature new audio with a 5.1 surround sound remaster, and a complete redubbing with the same cast members. Here’s the most recent promo video:
In addition to this, the first visual for the second season was released this January and it was also revealed that the second season of Attack on Titan will be airing sometime in 2016. More information about the upcoming anime will be revealed at the second compilation film on June 27.
The Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) series was created by Hajime Isayama. It started off as a manga in 2009 and is published in Kodansha’s monthly Bessatsu Shounen Magazine. To date there has been 14 compiled volumes of the manga. A prequel light novel adaptation started in 2011, and two spin-off manga started serialization in 2012: Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the Fall and Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou. In April 2013 the series was picked up for an anime adaptation. The anime series was produced by the newly formed Wit Studios. The series has grown in popularity since the anime’s debut, with the manga selling over 36 million copies as of April this year. Two live action film adaptations will be releasing in Japan next year. The first images for the live-action 2015 Attack on Titan film were also earlier released.
Here is a synopsis of the anime from Haruhichan:
Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of titans.
Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single titan and take revenge for all of mankind.
