Years later, the two friends finally have their chance when they’re invited to a mysterious audition. However, the two are not the only ones who have trained for this moment, and they must now compete with others whom all share the same dream of performing on stage.
The 2018 Revue Starlight TV anime is directed by Tomohiro Furukawa and features animation production by Kinema Citrus. The staff and cast information for the two upcoming Revue Starlight theatrical films has not yet been revealed.
