The new Code Geass feature film landed back in February 2019 in Japan with Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection and the North American theatrical release from Funimation went over pretty well too! So we’re now in the phase of waiting on the home video release and that’s getting a little closer. According to Funimation by way of WTK, the film is set for a February 25th, 2020 release with full details to be revealed later. The announcement is tied to the nod that Funimation is bringing some special guests, panels and autograph sessions to the Anime NYC convention from the project.

Working from CLAMP’s original character designs, Takahiro Kimura will be handling that area while Sunrise is on the animation production.
