With a domestic home video release back in 2017, the Girls und Panzer der Film project made its way to streaming recently. Netflix previously added the film on its service with some issues and then things came off and then it was rescheduled with a December 15th, 2019 release date. That’s now come and both the series and the film are now available in their full and proper form for streaming and enjoying. Let’s hope it sticks around a bit after all the ups and downs!
