The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie is rolling into theaters this week in English-speaking territories across the globe. In celebration of the film’s release, Crunchyroll has now dropped a trailer for the English-dubbed version of the movie.
In the new movie, the five lovely young quintuple sisters finally finish their third year of high school. Will Fuutaro finally make a choice? You can check out the new trailer video below:
THE QUINTESSENTIAL QUINTUPLETS MOVIE GETS AN ENGLISH DUB TRAILER RELEASE
In the highly anticipated film, the Nakano sisters are finishing up their third year of high school, and their last school festival is approaching. Now, it’s time for them to look at what’s next. Do they see a future together with their private tutor Futaro? That’s what this movie is about.
It definitely looks like the movie will be an emotional, tear-jerking event as this will serve as the definitive ending to the story about five sisters, who are also like best friends and their broke tutor they fell in love with.
The new highly-anticipated movie acts as both a continuation and conclusion of the popular romcom anime series. The Nakano sisters, who are bad with their grades and studying, hire the part-time, down-on-his-luck student Futaro. Futaro helps guide their education and their hearts.
The English voice cast for the film features Josh Grelle as Futaro Uesugi, Lindsay Seidel as the oldest sister Ichika Nakano, Jill Harris as the second sister Nino Nakano, Felecia Angelle as the third sister Miku Nakano, Bryn Apprill as the fourth sister Yotsuba Nakano, and Tia Ballard as fifth sister Itsuki Nakano.
Based on the original manga series, The Quintessential Quintuplets, created by Negi Haruba, the property has become a global success. Since the manga launched in 2019, it’s sold over 16 million copies worldwide as of 2022.
The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie also saw success after its theatrical release in Japan earlier in May. The film grossed $16.4 million at the Japanese box office. It was also nominated in eight categories for the 2022 Newtype Anime Awards, including Best Picture. So, it’s already been racking up accolades ahead of its release in North America and abroad.
Crunchyroll has also been doing well when it comes to theatrical releases this year. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opened No. 1 at the domestic box office when it was released in North America in August. The film opened with $21 million on the way to $38 million domestically and $86.5 million worldwide.
Also, One Piece Film: Red opened with $9.3 million on its way to $12.7 million at the domestic box office and made $165.5 million worldwide. While some of those amounts may not seem big compared to major blockbusters, it’s impressive for anime properties that originated in Japan to find such impressive footholds abroad and become viable, global brands.
While The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie probably won’t gross comparable numbers in domestic theaters compared to Dragon Ball Super or even One Piece, it’s still great to see anime movies getting wider releases across the globe. Fans having more access to theatrical anime pictures is always a good thing.
The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie arrives in theaters in North America, including the United States and Canada, on Friday, December 2. The film will be screening in both subbed and dubbed versions in English-speaking territories across the globe, including the United States, Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Fans can also check out the first two seasons of the series, which are streaming now, on Crunchyroll.com.
