Fans may know what Ciel would look like blonde thanks to Alois Trancy's uncanny looks, but Black Butler wasn't satisfied with the doppleganger. No, the series chose to put fans out of their curious misery with its latest feature film, and a new clip shows Ciel Phantomhive with white-blonde hair.

In the video, which can be seen above, fans meet up with Ciel as the young heir lurks around his demonic butler Sebastian. The pair have infiltrated a cruise liner catering to a strange society tied to occult activities, and Ciel's disguise necessitated he go blonde. Sebastian minds plenty of humor in his master's discomfort, but no one takes more pleasure than the Undertaker. The older man's finds the blonde makeover delightful, and the Undertaker isn't afraid to make those feelings known to Ciel.

You can read the clip's caption below:

"Ciel and Sebastian's latest adventure takes them to the luxury liner Campania, where they meet some familiar faces from past escapades…"

"All aboard to the next great adventure for Ciel and his demonic butler, Sebastian! After hearing rumors of a peculiar society bringing people back from the dead, the two board the luxury liner Campania on her maiden voyage to investigate.
