An official website has opened and announced that the Eureka Seven franchise will receive a movie trilogy. Titled Koukyoushihen Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution, the movies are scheduled to premiere in 2017, 2018, and 2019, respectively. The movies will tell the story of the phenomenon known as "The First Summer of Love" that took place ten years before the first Eureka Seven anime, but was never depicted in full. The movies will then follow the main storyline of the first TV anime and contain new dialogues and scenes, revised footage, as well as a new ending not present in the original series.
Eureka Seven is an original anime produced by Bones and Bandai Entertainment, which aired in Spring 2005. The series received a sequel movie in April 2009, as well as a sequel TV series in Spring 2012 with a different set of main characters. Bandai Entertainment licensed the series and the movie for North American distribution and released them in DVD volumes between April 2006 and March 2010. FUNimation re-licensed both seasons and the movie, and released them in Blu-ray and DVD volumes between August 2013 and April 2014.
The original anime has won multiple awards including "Best Screenplay," "Best Television Series," and "Best Character Designs" at the 5th Tokyo Anime Awards, an award in the "Domestic Digital Contents Category" at the 20th Digital Content Grand Prix, and the "Best Female Character" and "Best Television Series" during the 2006 Anime Expo SPJA Awards in the US.
