Members of SOARA star in the 3D take on the 2.5D franchise
The fictional talent agency known as TsukiPro has gained a following for itself with Tsukiuta, a series of mixed media projects showcasing its various idol characters. After a successful jump to anime, the boys of TsukiPro are making their way to live-action.
One of the groups within TsukiPro, SOARA, will take the lead in the project's first live-action feature, titled LET IT BE -You Exist to Be You-. The film will tell the story of the group's beginnings, and feature cameo appearances from voice actors involved in SolidS and Growth, two more groups in TsukiPro.
A series of stills from the upcoming film has been released:
The project's stage cast will be returning to play the members of SOARA:
Sora Ohara: Ryusei Hotta
Morihito Arihara: Mashu Ishiwatari
Soshi Kagurazaka: Chihiro Yoshida
Ren Munakata: Shinichiro Ueda
Nozomu Nanase: Chiharu Sawashiro
LET IT BE -You Exist to Be You- will premiere at Ikebukuro's HUMAX Cinema on October 4 for a limited run.
