I'm going to be pessimistic and assume 95+% copypasta. Shaft can't possibly handle animating significant chunks of two theatrical works at once (not with adequate quality) with ~6 months to go, with Kizu and Hidamari 4th and whatever else on the way as well.
Though I'd so very much love to be wrong. They are, at least, significantly cutting down on the number of TV shows they do lately. Maybe that'll be enough.
The episodic cliffhangers are going to be harder to do in a movie format.
The only really thing they could add is longer fight sequences.
5 minute fight sequence between Walpurgis and Homura = fly to Japan to watch it.

i hope so too. i'm also hoping that in either the first or second movie they will show Kyoko and Mami's history together as best friends. it was in the drama cd Farewell Story, but imagine seeing it for real! i'm just not quite sure which of the two i like more. they're both pretty fantastic characters, and it bother's me that i can't decide who i like more. but anyways, i hope they show their friendship and such. i also hope they finally tell us what happened to Homura's parents
since the movie will probably be featured in Japan only, then whoever somehow gets a hold of it please PLEASE post the movie on Youtube! i beg of you!
Scroll down a bit for comparison shots. It looks like Shaft is, at least, doing some extensive clean-up and additional work with backgrounds and such, even beyond the clean-up done for the BDs. Mami's transformation is also updated. It's still a recap movie and all but I'm glad they're taking he opportunity to work on the visuals more.

Oh hey that's back. When I started posting here and for a long time after I know search was disabled for performance reasons, but I didn't realize it got reenabled at some point. Now I don't need to keep using an inurl: google search to find stuff. Thanks.
Over the last weekend, its box office was 172 million Yen with 43 screens. (the equivalent revenue for the first movie was 139 million Yen). It broke two records in Japanese cinema history
- The first movie from a midnight anime to take No.1 in the box office ranking
- The first movie with <50 screens to take No.1 in the box office ranking
BTW I read the reports by those fans who went to the 2nd movie and apparently although the animation was all redone the sequence and scenes look close to the TV series up till midpoint of Ep.9. And after that there are quite a bit of new scenes added, particularly in majo-Sayaka vs Kyouko as well as Homura's talk to QB about Kyouko and Homura vs Walpurgisnacht.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?
I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?
I wonder how long people would put up with this.
As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.
