With a June 10th, 2017 premiere ahead of us, the official site for the King of Prism: Pride the Hero anime feature film has updated with a new promotional trailer for it. The piece features the new song from it and gives us a taste for the new and returning members of the cast over its 90-second running time.

Plot concept: Shin Ichijō and seven new students join Edel Rose training school to follow their dreams. They hope to become the next Prism Stars and appear in future Prism Shows. However, a plot lead by Schwarz Rose’s Jin Norizuki leads to a threat to Edel Rose’s existence. Over The Rainbow goes on indefinite hiatus to save Edel Rose, and the three performers go their separate ways. In order to return a huge debt, Kōji goes to Hollywood to produce film music. Kazuki goes on a street-style quest to rediscover his own origins. Hiro delves into special training to improve himself. In separate locations, the members come to face themselves as Prism Stars.
The baton is passed from the senior performers to their juniors. They again question their bonds with their peers. The curtain is finally raised on the tumultuous conditions inside the Prism King Cup. No one has ever seen Prism Jump’s breathless response like this. Who in the world can shine above it all for the King of Prism crown? The coming events will carve a new page in history.
