A stage presentation at the Jump Festa ’19 event has announced that Takeshi Konomi’s The Prince of Tennis and The New Prince of Tennis manga are inspiring a new anime film. The film, titled Ryōma! Shinsei Gekijōban Tennis no Ōji-sama (Ryōma! Rebirth Movie The Prince of Tennis) will open in Japan in early Spring 2020. The film will feature a completely original story that will take place in the three-month time period between the events at the end of The Prince of Tennis manga and the start of The New Prince of Tennis manga.
Takeshi Konomi serialized The Prince of Tennis manga’s original run in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1999 to 2008. Konomi then launched The New Prince of Tennis manga series in Shueisha’s Jump Square magazine in 2009. VIZ Media publishes the manga in English.
