Toei Animation's latest feature film PreCure Super Stars! has proved the PreCure franchise's uprising popularity in Japan. Following the advance ticket sales records, the 24th PreCure film earned an impressive 226,236,600 yen from the 202,750 ticket sales in its opening weekend of March 17-18, which was 143.5% of that of last year's PreCure Dream Stars! and the highest in the PreCure franchise's 15-year history.
The previous two-day opening weekend record of 220 million yen was marked by the 8th feature film (2nd All Stars film) PreCure All Stars DX2: Light of Hope☆Protect the Rainbow Jewel! released in March 2010. Since All Stars DX2 also earned 1.15 billion yen from its total domestic run and has been the most successful film in the franchise, PreCure Super Stars! is expected to surpass the box office record for the first time in eight years.
The latest PreCure crossover film features the 12 PreCure girls from the recent three TV series: Maho
Girls PreCure! (2016–2017), Kirakira PreCure a la Mode (2017–2018), and the ongoing Hugtto! PreCure
(2018-), and is directed by Yoko Ikeda (Suite PreCure The Movie).
