The Overlord: The Holy Kingdom movie has revealed a 2024 release date and a teaser trailer. The announcement was originally made during a special New Year’s program. Satoshi Hino (Ainz), Yumi Hara (Albedo), and Masayuki Kato (Demiurge) presented the information during the program, which went ahead on Tokyo MX despite the 7.5 earthquake that hit central Japan earlier in the day. The release of the information was postponed due to the situation after a major tsunami warning has been issued.
This is the third movie in the Overlord franchise: it will adapt Volumes 12-13 of the light novel. The arc was not included in the fourth season but events from it should have taken place around the 8th episode. The first two movies are recaps of the first and second seasons of the anime.
