For those of you that wanted to see the Revue Starlight anime film adaptation once it was announced for US theatrical screenings earlier this year, but weren’t able to either due to lack of time owing to its short screening period or its limited availability across the country, Sentai Filmworks and HIDIVE have heard the calls to make the film more available and have graciously announced that the film will be available to stream starting next Wednesday, August 24 from 10AM PT/ Noon CT/ 1PM ET. Sentai Filmworks describes the film:
The stage emulates life and compresses it, setting free skills learned over lifetimes in brief but dazzling displays for the amusement and judgment of others. For the performers, it is the ultimate risk, and some will rise while others must fall. Nowhere is this truer than at the Seisho Music Academy, where music, dance and real weapons all come into play in the creation of the next great Star. Karen and Hikari’s destinies have been linked since a childhood promise, but their journeys here have taken very different paths. Now, after Hikari leaves, Karen must discover who she is without her opposite, while Hikari must rediscover her own course. Nor are they the only girls who must reassess and change if they want to achieve their dreams, as the dance, magic, and swordplay continue in REVUE STARLIGHT: THE MOVIE!
