New Macross Delta Film, Gekijōban Macross Delta: Zettai LIVE!!!!!! Announced! Sixth Member of Walküre teased!


New Macross movie rumored to be released in 2020.

The members of the idol group Walküre announced on the second day of the Macross Crossover Live 2019 concerts that the title of the new Macross Δ film is Gekijōban Macross Delta: Zettai LIVE!!!!!! (Macross Delta the Movie: Absolute Live!!!!!!) The Walkūre members noted that there are six exclamation points in the title when there are only five members, and they half-jokingly asked the creator and director Shōji Kawamori for the reason. Kawamori teased that there will be a sixth performer.

The Shoji Kawamori Expo opened on Friday, and the end of the exhibition revealed a story teaser for the new film:

Walküre and Delta Flight used music to save people from the Vár Syndrome, a previously unknown disease that made humans and others go berserk. However, they find themselves facing a new threat…

Shoji Kawamori stated at the Flying Dog 10th Anniversary Live 'Inu Fes event in February that he is aiming to release the new Macross Δ anime film in 2020. However, the Shōji Kawamori Expo listed the film in "20XX." The first film was Macross Δ Movie: Passionate Walküre, released in early 2018.
