The latest film in the Free! franchise, Free! (2020), has been postponed. The Kyoto Animation production was scheduled to premiere in Summer 2020, but the official website announced that it has been indefinitely postponed due to various circumstances. The production team hopes to have an updated release date in the near future, and promised to do their best in creating a film in line with expectations.
The Free! series began in July 2013 and is based on the High☆Speed! light novel, an honorable mention in the second Kyoto Animation Awards in 2011. It was written by Kouji Ooji, with the late Futoshi Nishiya providing the illustrations. Nishiya was also the chief animation director for the High☆Speed!: Free! Starting Days prequel film released in 2015 and the third season of the Free! TV anime series.
