According to the April issue of the Smart magazine, a men’s fashion magazine, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Movie 3: Hangyaku no Monogatari (劇場版 魔法少女まどか☆マギカ 叛逆の物語) , the third and final movie in the Madoka trilogy, will be open in Japan this summer. Due to the fact that the second movie was the last few scenes of the TV series, the third movie will be completely new material and will be a direct sequel to the series.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica (魔法少女まどか★マギカ) aired from January 7, 2011 to April 22, 2011 and is about magical witch girls with a lot of catches. Seriously, this was nothing like I expected it to be. The series got seriously dark. If you think this is all about cute girls doing cute magic tricks, you’re wrong. The first movie, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Movie 1: Hajimari no Monogatari (劇場版 魔法少女まどか☆マギカ 始まりの物語), aired on October 6, 2012. The second movie, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica Movie 2: Eien no Monogatari (劇場版 魔法少女まどか☆マギカ 永遠の物語) aired on October 13, 2012. Both of the movies were recaps of the series with a little extra content. I am really, really looking forward to this. I thought the story was done though so I’m really curious as to what this movie will be about! Can’t wait for the premier!
