The first part of The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh movie revealed a key visual ahead of the December 20, 2022 premiere. The movie will stream exclusively on Netflix.
Earlier this month, the movie revealed an exclusive clip featuring Tristan, Meliodas and Elizabeth. Hiroyuki Sawano is returning for the movie with “Lemonade” – the theme song performed by XAI. Teaser visual for The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh (Nanatsu no Taizai: Ensa no Edinburgh) was revealed during this year’s Netflix TUDUM.
Alfred Imageworks and Marvy Jack are animating the movie, which will be CGI and feature a spin-off story focusing on Tristan. Noriyuki Abe is listed as the chief director, while Bob Shirahata is the director. Rintaro Ikeda is writing the script. The plot is described as:
14 years since the Kingdom of Liones defeated the Demon Clan and brought peace to the land, Prince Tristan is tormented by his inability to control two great powers: the Demon Clan power of his father, Meliodas, who served as captain of the Seven Deadly Sins as the Dragon Sin of Wrath, and the Goddess Clan power of his mother, Elizabeth. When Elizabeth’s life is threatened, Tristan flees the kingdom and heads toward Edinburgh, where Deathpierce — who was once a member of a group of the kingdom’s Holy Knights, the Pleiades of the Azure Sky — maintains his castle. But what are Deathpierce’s intentions? The wheel of fate begins to move and sweeps up even The Seven Deadly Sins…
The movie will take place after the original series and before the events of the Four Knights of the Apocalypse manga sequel. The sequel is also getting an anime adaptation.
