The movie adaptation of Tadatoshi Fujimaki's "Kuroko no Basuke Extra Game" series, titled "Gekijōban Kuroko no Basuke Last Game" ("Kuroko's Basketball The Movie: Last Game"), has just announced its official premiere date. The movie, which is set after Kuroko and Kagami become second year high school students, will hit Japanese theaters on March 18, 2017.

According to Anime News Netwok, those who would buy tickets earlier starting on Dec. 3 will get an A5-size folder which has a picture of one of the members of Vorpal Swords team. There are seven clear file folders in total.

The cast members and most of the production team will be back for the movie. Shunsuke Tada, who directed all three seasons of the "Kuroko no Basket" anime series, will come back as film director. Yoko Kikuchi will handle character designs, Noboru Takagi will be in charge of series composition, and Yoshihiro Ike from the anime seasons 2 and 3 will compose the music score. Original series creator Fuijimaki, who is also the film's chief supervisor, will write an original episode to be added to the movie.

"Kuroko no Basket," also known as "The Basketball Which Kuroko Plays," follows the story of the Phantom sixth man of the Generation on Miracles from the Teiko Middle School Basketball Team. Despite being weak and small compared to other players, Kuroko uses his lack of presence to pass and still the ball using misdirection.

"Kuroko's Basketball The Movie: Last Game" will take place after Kuroko, Kagami and the rest of the Generation of Miracles become sophomore students. The Japanese team will be crushed by an American team called Jabberwock, and the Generation of Miracles plus Kuroko and Kagami will assemble to make the most powerful team called Vorpal Swords. Their team will exact revenge on the cocky American basketball players who will make fun of Japanese basketball. Previously, the film released the visuals of the  Vorpal Swords member in their official uniforms.
