It has been four years since the release of The Yuri!!! on ICE anime series—which, while still underrated, garnered a sizeable and adoring fandom. And today, a trailer for the Yuri!!! on Ice the Movie: Ice Adolescence (Yuri!!! on Ice Gekijō-ban: Ice Adolescence), the movie for the franchise, was posted on its website. The trailer was first screened at a viewing of the TV series in January 2019 but had never been posted online.

The movie was initially supposed to be released in 2019, and this recent update has come as a welcome surprise to its fans. MAPPA, the animation studio behind the series, had announced this movie in April 2017.

The trailer shows a young Victor, who is just 17 years old, gearing up for his Olympic debut. Unfortunately, nothing else has been revealed, but fans are excited despite the short duration of the clip.

The official Twitter account for the show also posted about the production status of the movie in English, Japanese, and Spanish; production is ongoing, but no release date can be finalized yet. The film’s production committee also apologized for the delay but promised that their team would continue to work diligently on the future release.
