The Seven Deadly Sins anime has ended after 7 years of airing, however, this does not mean the end of the story. This anime is coming back with a new movie called Grudge of Edinburgh which will have two parts. The first part of The Seven Deadly Sins movie will have its premiere already in December, and a new trailer was released recently.
The Seven Deadly Sins followed the adventures of Meliodas and Elizabeth, as well as other sins, for 5 seasons. However, even though it started out as one of the most beloved franchises of today, The Seven Deadly Sins has become a meme among anime fans with its final seasons and studio change. That’s why the question arises whether the new film will be able to bring back this once legendary shounen.
A new trailer released on the official Netflix Anime YouTube channel also revealed the release date of this sequel.
