Attack on Titan Movie is in talks once again. With Attack On Titan approaching its end, fans are arguing if the 12 episodes can really size up the rest of the manga. MAPPA announced that they are splitting the series. Hence, the addition of Part 2 in Season 4 came along. But the episodes stretch up to only 12, which raises a lot of questions. Now that AoT is moving towards a conclusion, it is likely that many characters and details will get a chance to appear on the screen. Many relationships, plus Ymir’s connection with Fritz, are yet to come up. So, will a film adapt the further chapters? What are the possibilities? Here are all the details.
Attack on Titan first came out in April 2013 and had been going on for almost a decade. The anime and the manga of the same name have been a huge success with four seasons, eight OVAs, and three movies in total. However, the previous films have only been a revision of the plot of the previous seasons. So, if added to the franchise, the next movie will serve as a much more serious take.
The following section contains Season 4 spoilers from the manga.
Attack On Titan Movie: MAPPA’s Next Plan
According to a leak on Twitter, the last season of AoT might go through some censorship because of its dark and gruesome plot. So, that might prevent the show from animating all of it in the television format. With fans arguing that MAPPA has already adapted the scene where Armin’s Colossal Titan steps on innocent Marleyans. Hence, a more violent take will not appear as an issue. However, it is not the killings rather the entirely dark turn that the show is about to take.
In addition, it is notable that the rumors have not died down rather certainly peaked this year. On the other hand, Studio MAPPA has confirmed that Part 2 of season 4 will cover the rest of the manga. The Jujutsu Kaisen fame Studio is likely to fulfill all their fan’s wishes. However, fans are worried if this might cause a few cuts in the original project. While Studio MAPPA is known for its last Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film that covers the prequel of the show. So, a movie release for better exposure of the plot might not be too new for the studio.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Attack on Titan has 139 chapters in total, which take up 34 volumes of the manga. The first part of season 4 is animated till Chapter 116 of the manga. However, portions of it were also a part of the beginning of the recent release. Hence, Chapter 117 begins part 2 but can also feature parts from 115. Now, with only 139 chapters, MAPPA can surely adapt them in the 12 episodes.
But that might hinder a deeper take in the lives of the characters. However, MAPPA’s start has been great, and fans have readily praised its animation. Plus, the details of Mikasa’s scarf or the mark on Mikasa’s wrist only made the shift of studio even better. It is also worth mentioning that fans are not in favor of a movie release since the release will cause another delay in the conclusion.
Attack On Titan Movie: Release Date
Now, MAPPA has confirmed none of these details, and a release date is far from predictions right now. But, if it had to premiere, that would definitely be after the wrap-up of season 4. So, Attack On Titan Movie is likely to premiere in 2023 or late 2024. However, for that, MAPPA has to make the official announcement while the show is running. Thus, for further updates, stay tuned.
