The Alice to Therese no Maboroshi Koujou film was first announced in June 2021 along with a visual and trailer. Warner Bros. is distributing the movie in Japan.
Director and screenwriter Okada previously stated that she wanted to recreate the atmosphere she felt as a child while watching Japanese movies and anime movies. Boys will be the main characters in this movie which will depict the “tingling feeling of youth” instead of sweet and sour teenage drama.
