Back in April, it was announced that the Saekano movie will release in the Philippines sometime this year. Now, Pioneer Films has announced that Saekano the Movie: Finale will release in select Philippine cinemas on November 27, 2020. The announcement was made via the film distributor’s Facebook page.
Specifically, Saekano the Movie: Finale will release in cinemas in modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) areas. Sadly, this means the film will not screen in cinemas within Metro Manila, as the region is still under general community quarantine.
Currently though, there’s no word yet on the full cinema list for Saekano The Movie.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Saekano The Movie: Finale is an anime film that is an adaptation of the eighth to the final volumes of the Saekano light novel series. The film also serves as the final to the Saekano anime series.
The film is described as:
