The production committee for the Princess Principal: Crown Handler film and Hakuhodo DY Music & Pictures have announced that they are delaying the film’s release. They cited the government policies to contain the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), as well as the health and safety of moviegoers. The committee and Hakuhodo DY Music & Pictures will announce the film’s new schedule as soon as it is decided on the film’s website and social media accounts.
Princess Principal: Crown Handler is the first of six planned sequel anime films. It would have opened on April 10, 2020 before this delay. In addition, the streaming of the “Pri-Pri Secret Meeting Super” program and television series marathon on April 5, 2020 has also been canceled.
