Black Clover has finally given fans the first major look at its upcoming debut movie project, and with the first teaser trailer has brought in a new character who was actually a former Wizard King named Conrad! Black Clover's anime ended its TV run with 170 episodes under its belt, but Yuki Tabata's original manga series has powered through all the way to its now in progress final arc overall. But with the new movie project announced to continue the anime further, there was a question over what this new movie could be tackling given how little room there was to experiment following the anime's ending.
It turns out that Black Clover's feature film debut will be for an original story. Titled Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, this new movie will be focusing on a new story overseen by series creator Yuki Tabata. Introducing a new character named Conrad Leto (who will be voiced by Toshihiko Seki in the new movie), who is a former Wizard King of the kingdom and likely the big villain for the project overall, you can check out the official character design for this mysterious new foe below:
Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King will be launching on Netflix worldwide on March 31st next year. Original series creator Yuki Tabata was the film's chief supervisor and provided the new character designs, Ayataka Tanemura returns from the TV anime to direct, Itsuko Takeda returns as character designer, and Minako Seki will be composing the music. The cast from the TV anime is expected to return for the new movie as well, but much of the story is still being kept under wraps at the time of this writing.
This new story will be focusing on an original look back into this former Wizard King, and will likely highlight a piece of the Clover kingdom history unexplored in the main series. This also means that the TV anime is still free to potentially return someday to adapt the final two arcs of the series when they finish their run in a couple of years from now. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the new movie to hit Netflix!
