Ok…maybe not really that near you, depending where you live…but seriously! Madoka’s going to the big screen! And not just once…not twice…but THREE times. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, Gen Urobochi has agreed to bless his fans with a whole trilogy of feature-length Madoka Magica films!

Now….before you get too excited…according to the official announcement, two of these films will indeed be compilations of the original story. Personally…I don’t mind…the thought of getting to see the original story redone in good ol’ movie-quality style interests me greatly. And considering the fact that these two movies only have to cover what occurred in a 13-episode series, I don’t think there’s any reason to be concerned about them leaving too much of the important stuff out. In fact, I’m kind of hoping, despite the fact that these will be compilation films, that the directors will choose to add some more details here and there. I’m not expecting much…nothing that would revolutionize the story…but just little things here and there that would make the movies stand slightly apart from the tv series.

That’s only the first two films though! We have one whole film left…and it’s going to be all new material. We don’t know what it’ll be about…I’m inclined to agree with Kurogane in hoping that it will be an extension of the 10th episode…but I also really wouldn’t mind seeing something completely new. And since the director is quoted in the article as jokingly saying he wanted to make the new movie’s subtitle “Incubator no Gyakushū” (“Incubator Strikes Back”), I’m honestly expecting an actual sequel to the story.

So there you have it, folks…I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely looking forward to this!

See you soon!
