The Kadokawa Animation feature film ‘Goodbye, Don Glees’ is heading back to theaters for a limited run on September 14, 18, and 20 with a special English language dub from GKids. The animation studio is planning to distribute the film in North America, teasing it with a special trailer.

“In anticipation of the upcoming theatrical release, GKIDS has revealed the cast for the all-new English language dub, as well as trailers in both language versions. Produced by the acclaimed Studio Madhouse, the film is the first original feature from writer/director Atsuko Ishizuka, who previously directed the widely lauded series A Place Further Than The Universe,” GKids explained.

The Japanese cast includes voice actors Ayumu Murase (Shoyo Hinata,” Haikyu!!”), Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro Kamado, “Demon Slayer”), Kana Hanazawa (Akane Tsunemori, “Psycho-Pass”), and Yuuki Kaji (Eren Jaeger, “Attack on Titan”).
GKids describes the synopsis as follows,
“Teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop call themselves the “Don Glees,” an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. As disaster strikes their expedition, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life.”
The movie was edited by Kashiko Kimura and features music from Yoshiki Fujisawa. Ayano Okamoto worked on the film as the art director while Takahiro Yoshimatsu handled the character designs.
The film received a manga adaption written and illustrated by Shinki that was published by Media Factory in their ‘Monthly Comic Gene.’
Japan saw the movie released on February 18, 2022.
