Pre-purchasing a ticket will net you one of two tasty-looking PreCure toys.
The upcoming PreCure Dream Stars film will feature the first big-screen outing of the franchise's newest team, Kirakira PreCure a la Mode. With a name like that, you can expect desserts to play a huge part in anything they do. And that's definitely true of movie ticket sales, which will include a toy version of the "animal sweets" featured in the film's new promo art.
The sweets -- a Mofurun Muffin and Sakura Cake Daifuku -- apparently play some sort of role in the movie. Starting today, sales of advance film tickets at participating box offices will include your choice of one of the toys.
While the muffin and daifuku are not for eating, they pair nicely with existing PreCure toys.
Toys are available while supplies last, and each has a nationwide limit of 90,000 units.
PreCure Dream Stars! premieres March 18 in Japan, and will feature characters from Go! Princess PreCure, Maho Girls PreCure!, and Kirakira PreCure a la Mode as they protect their new friend Sakura from the evil Karasu Tengu.
