We've known from industry chatter than a new Eureka Seven project was in the works for about six months or so, and as time has gone on so those murmurs have increased in intensity and frequency.
Well, now we know exactly what Studio BONES are planning, and that's a trilogy of prequel movies based on the franchise, taking place ten years before the events of the TV show and depicting the First Summer of Love phenomenon that led into that series. The trilogy takes the title of Psalms of Planets: Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution.
The first film will see its theatrical release in Japan this year, with the second and third movies set for release in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
Off the back of this announcement, Anime Limited president Andrew Partridge has noted that this news may have been part of the reason why details on their Eureka Seven Ultimate Edition are yet to be finalised, while also noting that this shouldn't be taken as an announcement pertaining to these movies of any kind.
