Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale Visual will have a different a story from a light novel that what I think. Because I‘ve read the novel and I do not remember any part of this story. I think the director wanted to make a story more different than before. It is true novel and the film was very different but this is where its appeal may be great to make us want to watch. Let’s wait the movie presence in 2017.
The movie itself is being scheduled for a 2017 release.
The main cast of the upcoming film has been revealed, which will consist of many returning characters from the previous two anime seasons with new original character designs from abec :
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sora in No Game No Life) will be back to voice Kirito
- Haruka Tomatsu (Haruka Takayama in Sakura Trick) returns as Asuna
- Rina Hidaka (Airi Kashii in Ro-Kyu-Bu!) as Silica
- Ayahi Takagaki (Mikako Satsukitane in Sora no Otoshimono) will voice Lisbeth
- Miyuki Sawashiro (Celty Sturluson from Durarara!!) is back as Sinon
- Hiroaki Hirata (Sanji from One Piece) will return to voice Klein
The film will feature the new VMMO Ordinal Scale that utilises the new Augma Augmented Reality device. Players rank up in the game by defeating monsters and using special items.It will have an original story, not adapting of Kawahara’s any previous work; set after the Mother’s Rosario arc, which was the third and final arc to be animated in Sword Art Online II. The arc itself was featured in the light novel’s 7th volume.
The Director of first two seasons, Tomohiko Ito (Silver Spoon, Seikimatsu Occult Gakui), will return to direct the film alongside Anime Character Designer Shingo Adachi (Working!!, Galilei Donna). Yuki Kajiura (Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica,Fate/Zero) will also return to compose the music and A-1 Pictures (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, AnoHana) will be back to animate the film. Reki Kawahara will be writing the movie’s original story.
Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale is in production and will release in Japanese theatres in 2017. Further information about the upcoming original movie will be revealed in the near future.
