According to our sources, due to the huge and unexpected commercial success of the 2017 Gintama live-action movie a sequel is in pre-production and is set to be released in Japanese theaters on August 17th, 2018. The original director / screen-writer Yuichi Fukuda and star Shun Oguri will both be returning to the franchise. As someone who’s been fairly and consistently disappointed in live-action anime movies and no interest in Gintama I never planned to see the original but, after hearing so many good things about it I might be willing to give the 2017 release a watch. Especially since the North American Blu-ray version is being released on March 06, 2018.
