Previously announced back in May of 2018, some new information has been revealed for Bokura no Nanoka-kan Sensou ("Our 7Days War"), an upcoming theatrical film based on the much beloved 1985 young adult novel by Osamu Soda about a group of middle school kids who stage a rebellion against the adults that rule their lives during summer vacation.
The main staff for the Bokura no Nanoka-kan Senshou anime theatrical film includes:
- Director: Yūta Murano
- Screenplay: Ichirō Ōkouchi
- Original character draft: Keisin
- Character design: Hiroshi Shimizu
The original Bokura no Nanoka-kan Sensou novel is currently published in Japan by Kadokawa Shoten, and the book was previously adapted into a live-action film directed by Hiroshi Sugawara in 1988. The story of Bokura no Nanoka-kan Sensou follows a group of middle school students in Tokyo who have grown fed up with the tyrannical dictates of their teachers and parents. One summer the kids take over an abandoned factory and convert it into an impromptu fortress where no adults are allowed, leading to much confusion among the grown-ups.
Although the exact release date has not yet been revealed, the Bokura no Nanoka-kan Sensou anime theatrical film is scheduled to hit theaters in Japan in 2019.
