Princess Principal: Crown Handler Chapter 2 film Trailer reveals Release Date

On Thursday, the official website for the six-part Princess Principal: Crown Handler sequel film series debuted a trailer and a new key visual for the second film. Both confirm that the film will be released in 46 theatres across Japan on September 23:

Story of the first film:
Following the attempted assassination of the Queen, manhunts for spies become a frequent occurrence within the Kingdom. In response, Control — the Commonwealth's covert operations group — begins to suspect the presence of a double agent within the Kingdom's royal family. In order to reveal the truth, Control dispatches spy ring “Team White Pigeon.” But danger lurks around every corner, and when you don't know who you can trust, being a spy has never been more perilous for Ange and the rest of Team White Pigeon.

The first film was released on February 11th. The film was originally scheduled to be released in April 2020, but the film's production committee delayed its release, citing government policies to contain the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as well as moviegoers' health and safety.

On September 28, the first film's Blu-ray Disc release in Japan will include a new six-minute OVA titled "Busy Easy Money." Dorothy and Chise have summoned the members of Team White Pidgeon to the natural history room in the story of the OVA, because Dorothy apparently has something she wants to discuss.

Masaki Tachibana (Barakamon,.hack/Quantum) will return to direct the films at Actas. Instead of Ichiro Okouchi from the television anime, Noboru Kimura (Gundam Build Divers, Solty Rei) is supervising and writing the scripts (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress).

Kouhaku Kuroboshi (Kino's Journey, Sky Girls) is still credited with the original character designs, which were adapted for animation by Yukie Akiya (Celestial Method, Code:Breaker). Kimitake Nishio (Moetan, ToHeart2), on the other hand, is also designing characters for the films and is credited as the sole chief animation director in the absence of Akiya. Yuki Kajiura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero) returns to write music alongside sound director Yoshikazu Iwanami.
