However, we don’t know if this is the final runtime of Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King just yet!
This is because the tweet doesn’t confirm if the editing length is of the full movie or the parts finished so far.
Still, considering the fact that recent hit movies like One Piece: Film Red and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime the Movie: Scarlet Bond were around the two-hour mark as well, the runtime can be true for Black Clover as well.
Even Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was around two-hour long, which might be the new standard length for anime movies.
Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King was originally set to release on March 31 on Netflix. However, the movie was recently delayed by 3 months due to Covid-19.
The movie will premiere on June 16, 2023.
The staff for the movie is as follows:
- Director: Ayataka Tanemura
- Screenplay: Johnny Otoda and Ai Orii
- Character Designer: Itsuko Takeda
- Music: Minako Seki
- Supervisor and Original Character Design: Yuki Tabata
Yuki Tabata‘s Black Clover has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since February 2015, with its chapters collected in 30 tankōbon volumes as of October 2021.
