This year’s Kamen Rider and Super Sentai Summer movies, Kamen Rider Zero-One The Movie and Mashin Sentai Kiramager The Movie, have had their release in Japanese theaters officially delayed. In an official announcement on Toei’s website, the production teams apologized with the reason for the delay being the global coronavirus pandemic.
Now, as production has resumed for both Zero-One and Kiramager with Super Hero Time returning to TV Asahi, Japan’s state of emergency has been ended. It isn’t known at this time how production on the Summer movies were affected by the pandemic or if the delay is meant to keep moviegoers away from crowds, but avoiding crowds and staying at least six feet apart from others are two ways experts recommend people can protect themselves from COVID-19.
No new premiere date has been set for the Kamen Rider Zero-One and Mashin Sentai Kiramager Summer movies. The original premiere was set for July 23rd, 2020. When a new date is set, an announcement will be made on the official websites for the movies and on the movies’ official Twitter accounts.
