Toei has announced the reunion special for the current Sentai Series to be released in June, featuring the return of the original cast in new roles.
The Returns v-cinema series that presents fans one final adventure with the previous Sentai team began with Samurai Sentai Shinkenger and has since been continued with Goseiger, Go-Busters, and now Kyoryuger. Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger Returns: 100 Years After.
The cast members will play vastly different roles compared to those seen in the series and, based on the jackets seen in the video, are to be featured as new versions of the existing ancillary Kyoryugers (plus Nobuharu’s Yamato Kinjo as a future KyoryuBlue) in a time presumably 100 years after the end of the series. The movie’s title seems to be based on the 10 Years After title from the recent Hurricanger: 10 Years After v-cinema release.
100 Years After will be released on Blu-ray and DVD June 20th later this year and is to be written by series head writer Riku Sanjo, who has penned every Kyoryuger related script, and directed by Noboru Takemoto. It’s still unclear exactly how long the movie will be as TV Asahi says that it will be 60 minutes and Toei says that it will be 45 minutes long.The feature will come with a special Beast Battery as well as a 100 page booklet. Special features include a making of segment on both versions.
The DVD version will cost 6,800 yen while the Blu-ray will cost 7,800 yen.
