This Movie is a summary of the first half of the anime Overlord.

There’s basically nothing more to say, if you've watched the anime watching the movie will probably disappoint some of you, since it doesn’t add more to the plot of the story which we have been dying to know more off.

However, in a sense the movie helps hyped up the story for the upcoming Second season. It also help us remind of what happened in the story, so when the second season hits we would felt like theres no gap from season 1 to season 2.

As many others said this is a recap movie, however, i would like to add a lot of people who said there wasnt much new scenes is greatly mistaken. Sure it didnt make a huge impact but there are quite a few extra scenes that wasnt in the anime.

** Spoiler Alert **

In the beginning there was the dive scene.
Momonga chatting with Sebas was modified a bit.
Lots of pan out scenery shots of the cities and Nazarick.
The slane theocracy mission.
And a few more.

However, not everyone may be a fan of this type of recapping, as some viewers might find it to be repetitive or too similar to the original ...
