historic

feature film

unpublished portrait

” of the protagonist Luffy and the thousandth episode of the series.

The broadcaster also speaks of “

bonus

elements

A very popular saga

The system put in place for the event is atypical.

Apart from the latest productions from studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, Le Vent se lève ...), Japanese animated films still rarely reach French cinemas despite the French appetite for the genre. .

And when they do, it's often in a small number of rooms.

This time, 120 cinemas (CGR Cinémas, Kinepolis, Grand Rex, etc.) are participating in the operation.

Reservations will be open Tuesday October 26 at 4 p.m.

This type of outing tends to put a strain on presale sites.

When the film

Demon Slayer: The Infinity Train

arrived

, ticket offices did not hold up to the number of requests.
