Sentai Filmworks has announced that it has licensed the six-part Princess Principal: Crown Handler sequel film series in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Nordic countries, Scandinavian countries, the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal. The company will stream the first film in select outlets in Spring 2021.
The story is described as:
Following the attempted assassination of the Queen, manhunts for spies become a frequent occurrence within the Kingdom. In response, Control — the Commonwealth’s covert operations group — begins to suspect the presence of a double agent within the Kingdom’s royal family. In order to reveal the truth, Control dispatches spy ring “Team White Pigeon.” But danger lurks around every corner, and when you don’t know who you can trust, being a spy has never been more perilous for Ange and the rest of Team White Pigeon.
The first Princess Principal: Crown Handler film opened in Japanese theaters on February 11, 2021. The film was originally scheduled to open in April 2020, but the films’ production committee delayed the film’s release, citing the government policies to contain the spread of COVID-19, as well as the health and safety of moviegoers.
