When we first reported on the upcoming Fairy Tail film, it only had a vague August 2012 Japanese theatrical release planned. Now, thanks to the film's official website, we know it's set to premiere on August 18, 2012.
The film features Animation Production by A-1 Pictures, a script by Masashi Sogo (who was responsible for series composition on the TV show), and is directed by Masaya Fujimori, whose previous directorial works include Omae Umasoudana, and a Nintama Rantarou movie.
