Kamen Rider Zi-O Summer Movie Title and Riders Revealed
ISSA, who provided the opening theme to Kamen Rider Zi-O, now plays a Kamen Rider in the upcoming summer movie.
Kamen Rider Zi-O The Movie: Over Quartzer is the annual summer movie. Like previous movies, it is being advertised with a sense of finality to it. Similar examples of this advertising, and later addendums to it, can be seen in Kamen Rider Build and Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.
The Quartzers, calling themselves the managers of time, appear after Sogo finishes collecting all of the RideWatches. A grand conspiracy behind the birth of the king becomes clearer. From left to right, they are Kamen Rider Barlux, Kamen Rider Zonjis, and Kamen Rider Zamonas. Currently there are no official English spellings available for their names.
So Okuno (Sogo Tokiwa / Kamen Rider Zi-O) expresses confidence in the movie, saying “Those who watch it will probably be like, did that just happen!?”
Gaku Oshida (Geiz Myokoin / Kamen Rider Geiz) comments on the last movie – Heisei Generations FOREVER – saying that it was easier when working with other Heisei Rider actors. Now, there’s a lot of pressure involved when the movie is solely focused on their show.
Keisuke Watanabe (Woz / Kamen Rider Woz) comments on a surprise ending, saying that “(The movie) is an ending different from the TV series.”
The director, Ryuta Tasaki, commented on how those who will see this film are citizens of the Reiwa era, so he had to think about how to make the Heisei Kamen Riders appealing to them.
ISSA, who provides the opening theme for the show, will be appearing along with his band DA PUMP. ISSA will be playing the character who transforms into Kamen Rider Barlux – he commented on the role saying “I liked Kamen Riders and wanted to someday become a modified human, so I really teared up.”
When the subject of dancing was brought up, they joke about having to look to the Que Bom dance in Ryusoulger since there will not be a dance scene in the movie. ISSA felt a certain anxiety about his performance, unable to sleep the day before filming.
The movie will be premiering on July 26th alongside Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger The Movie: Time Slip! Dino Panic!!.
