During the Sword Art Online Festival at Anime Expo, Aniplex of America revealed the first trailer for the upcoming movie, Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale, along with a new key visual from character designer Shingo Adachi.

The movie will be released in theaters in Spring 2017, which includes North America.

“In 2026, two years since the SAO incident, a new game called “Oridinal Scale,” an Augmented-Reality MMO, is becoming popular among the players. But…strange things are happening in the game and Kirito and the gang are facing a new danger. A brand new story created by the original author, Reki Kawahara and directed by Tomohiko Ito.”

The original Japanese voice cast will return to reprise their roles for the film.
