Toei Animation was originally going to release the film in Japan on April 22, 2022, but pushed it back to June following a cyber attack on their corporation that affected many of their movies and TV shows.
As D-Rezzed previously reported, the studio explained that “the hack on Toei Animation was a ransomware virus that demanded a pay-off. Toei was able to confirm the existence of the virus and shut down its internal systems to investigate the extent of the virus’ reach. Details on the ransom, the virus itself, or where the virus may have come from, were not revealed.”
