The video trailer for the upcoming movie No Game No Life: Zero has been released! The film features many of the same main cast members as the anime series, but they play different characters. The movie is set six millennia before Sora and Shiro came into the alternate world. The film is being directed by Atsuko Ishizuka, the same person who directed the anime series.
The anime movie adaptation of the sixth light novel was announced on July 17, 2016. The film is scheduled to premiere on July 15, 2017. Based on the sixth volume of the light novel series, the story is set 6000 years before the events of the series, with most of the original cast portraying ancient characters related to their present counterparts. The anime series adapted the first 3 novels of Yuu Kamiya’s light novel series of the same title. After this movie, many fans are hoping for a second season of No Game No Life.
No Game No Life is a surreal comedy that follows Sora and Shiro, shut-in NEET siblings and the online gamer duo behind the legendary username “Kuuhaku.” They view the real world as just another lousy game; however, a strange e-mail challenging them to a chess match changes everything. The brother and sister are plunged into an alternate realm where they meet Tet, the God of Games.
