The summer 2017 anime series Princess Principal finished up and in 2018 revealed that it would get a sequel in anime form as a six-part film project that will start in 2019. That’s now set to kick off with the first film on April 10th, 2020 as the first teaser visual and promotional video has arrived for Princess Principal: Crown Handler.
But it’s not without some changes, notably with Aoi Koga taking on the role of Ange instead of Ayaka Imamura, who retired in 2018 due to health issues. The production has Masaki Tachibana back to direct but working with Noboru Kimura on the screenplay.
The Japanese cast includes Aoi Koga as Ange, Akira Sekine as Princess, You Taichi as Dorothy, Akari Kageyama as Beatrice, Nozomi Furuki as Chise, Takayuki Sugou as L, Miyuki Sawashiro as 7, Takumi Yamazaki as Colonel, Takaya Hashi as Duke Normandy, and Yuuko Iida as Gazelle.
Plot Concept: The stage is set during the 19th century London, in its capital where a wall divides the east and west of the Kingdom of Albion. Five high school girls, who enrolled in the prestigious Queens May Fair School, are involved in spy activities that involve disguise, infiltration, car chase, and more. These girls take advantage of their special abilities and fly around the shadow world.
