In the mountains of north Fiore lies the Fire Village, where a lush-blue relic known as the Phoenix Stone is preserved. Entrusted to a mystifying woman named Éclair, it is said to contain the power of an ancient phoenix. She wanders the land alone and protects the stone from harm, despite having no memory of why it was left in her care and only the faintest recollection of where she must take it.

After encountering the wizard guild Fairy Tail, Éclair receives an offer from Natsu Dragneel and his friends to help her uncover the mysteries surrounding the stone. However, in the midst of the group's journey, Éclair is suddenly attacked and the stone is taken from her. With this, nefarious intentions to revive the blazing phoenix for its unparalleled power come to light, and the wizards of Fairy Tail find themselves in a situation that could spell calamity. They must now work together to prevent the revival of the phoenix and save the world from ruin.

Ending Theme

What is there really to say? It's a shounen anime movie. If you've seen one you've seen them all. In a show that didn't have too many filler arcs it feels like the quintessential shounen filler. Bring in some new characters from the next town over that we didn't know existed until now and is never brought up again, have them invite the main cast on some quest or adventure with a mcguffin and have protagonist-kun do a one-time use slightly better version of his signature move buffed by said mcguffin. It's not rocket science, anybody could write the plot to one of these.

Mixed Feelings
Ehhh, it was okay. It didn't have the most memorable or interesting plot. I liked the fight scenes, but I guess it was kinda plain. I noticed the animation was inconsistent at some points. But I do recommend watching it, just felt like an average anime movie to me. That being said, love the show but the movie wasn't too great. It could've used a more interesting storyline, I like the new villains introduced but again the premise and plot I just didn't really care for. the fight scenes were epic and the animation was nice at times but could've worked on those previously mentioned ...

The film began with a strong fight scene, which made me to think "Amazing". But fast after the scene my expectations began to fall. I find the story line to intresting, but not well done. The anime(TV) always managed to me some emocional feeling, but here un the moive i cant feel that. There were times where the plot was slowing down too much and moment where there was a plot hurry so that you can not follow the story I dary to say: the movie is strong and good for people who not follow the manga and anime for years, ...
