Funimation began streaming a new English-subtitled trailer on Friday for the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection (Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch) sequel anime film. (The video is only available in the United States and Canada.)

Funimation will screen the film in North America on May 5 (subtitled), and on May 7-8 (dubbed), after screening the film at Seattle’s Sakura-Con convention in April.
Director Goro Taniguchi confirmed that many of the key staff members returned for the movie, and specifically emphasized that the story is complete in one film, which serves as a finale. The film’s story begins in the world two years after Zero Requiem.
Leo Ieiri performed the opening theme song “Kono Sekai de” (In This World), and Unione performed the ending theme song “Revive.” In addition, Ali Project performed the insert song “Utsukushiki Kemonotachi no Tame no” (For the Beautiful Creatures).
