Black Clover said goodbye to fans in early 2021, nearly four years after the first episode. The anime had 170 episodes. Even so, fans kept watching the episodes, talking about it all day, and reading the manga to find out what happened next.
All of this dedication led to the announcement that a full-length movie would be added to the franchise. Since then, it’s been a while, but more information about it has finally come out. The biggest news is that it’s called Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King. We can’t wait to see what else goes wrong in the Clover Kingdom, and we hope you are, too. Here’s everything you need to know about the movie.
Release Date of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King
The new trailer for Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King was surprisingly good, and fans couldn’t be happier to see Asta and the Magic Knights return. But along with its great first impressions, the movie also gave us an exciting release date: March 31, 2023.
The anime ended on March 30, 2021. Who would have thought that it would come back exactly two years later with a movie that looks like a real banger so far?
Where to Watch Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King?
Almost everyone thought that Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King would first come out in theatres and then, like most anime movies like Jujutsu Kaisen 0, be available to stream about a year later. But as it turns out, Netflix has bought the rights to the movie and it will be available to stream on their service from the first day.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about the movie’s plot and setting, but from what we know so far, the movie looks great, so make sure to watch it when it comes out on Netflix in 2023.
The Plot of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King
If you want to know what will happen in Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, the creator, Yki Tabata, has said that it will be a completely new story that has never been told in a manga before. The movie will also show Konrad Leto, the 27th Wizard King of the Clover Kingdom.
We don’t know for sure if Leto will play a big role in the movie as Asta did in the trailer. Julius is the Wizard King by the time Asta gets his powers, and Konrad is never mentioned. It will be interesting to see how Konrad fits into the big picture.
New Cast Member of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King
The main image and a new cast member for Black Clover’s first anime movie have been shown.
Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King is the name of the movie, and Fumiya Takahashi will play a new character named Jester.
Yuki Tabata first made Black Clover as a manga series. It’s about an orphan named Asta who doesn’t have magical powers in a world where everyone else does. Even though this is a problem, he is still determined to get these kinds of powers and become the next Wizard King.
It was turned into an anime TV show in 2017, and it ran for 170 episodes until 2021. Ayataka Takemura, who directed the last 18 episodes, will return to direct the next movie. The series will be animated again by Pierrot, with a script by Johnny Otoda and Ai Orii and character designs by Itsuko Takeda, who also made the image above.
Will the Black Clover Movie Be Canon?
No, Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King is not official. Based on what mangaka Yuki Tabata said, it sounds like the movie will be an original anime. He talks about how the story of the movie might make fans ask, “Why didn’t you do this in the manga?”
The Comeback of Black Clover
Fans don’t know much about this Black Clover movie yet, but this year we’ve learned a few important facts. One thing we know is that Asta will come back with Yuno and learn more about the Wizard Kings who came before Julius. A few casting announcements have confirmed that these former kings will be in the movie, so you can expect them to use some crazy magic.
We also know that Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King will only be on Netflix. Fans were happy when the streaming service told them about the license this fall. At the moment, the movie is set to be released all over the world on March 31. And if we’re lucky, the TV anime will get some kind of update at the end of the movie.
Of course, it is unlikely that the weekly show will come back before Tabata’s end. The last part of the manga’s story was started this year, but Asta’s journey has a long way to go before it’s over. Once that finale is done, Studio Pierrot could start storyboarding the rest of the anime. Fans of Black Clover will have to be patient as they wait for updates.
