Attack On Titan’s return is nigh, with the series set to release the second half of its final season that will bring to a close the war between the denizens of the island of Paradis and the citizens of Marley, and with the upcoming installments currently set for a total of twelve episodes, we’re nervous that this upcoming batch of episodes won’t in fact be the end. With Eren Jaeger combating both the forces of Paradis and Marley, there is a lot of ground to cover and a movie or part three of the fourth season might be necessary.
Without going too much into spoiler territory, the events that have yet to be translated in the anime series by Studio MAPPA are quite meaty, giving fans a lot of battles and ideas to mull over before Hajime Isayama’s anime adaptation comes to a close. Many allegiances are shifted and many characters have moments that will take time to explore. Twelve episodes certainly wouldn’t seem like enough to end the story of the world of Titans, and the material for the final battle definitely appears as though they could work in a movie-like structure, but should it? Hot on the heels of Jujutsu Kaisen 0’s success, the Shonen prequel movie that is also produced by MAPPA, the profits might definitely spur the animation studio to release the final battle of Attack On Titan into theaters to reap the rewards.
One of the biggest issues for this decision to potentially extend the final season would be continuing to string along the events that fans have been dying to see come to an apex in this latest season by MAPPA. Prior to the arrival of season four last year, many fans were led to think that the first half would be the entirety of the season, though the announcement of “Part 2” was slipped in following the finale of “Part 1,” Throwing in another curveball to make the announcement for a film might see some serious backlash for those waiting for the anime to wrap its story.

Certainly, a movie would have more resources behind it, but potentially waiting until 2023 to see Attack On Titan’s anime wrap, or potentially later than that, would be better received if it was revealed by MAPPA prior to these new episodes’ release.
Do you think that Attack On Titan will end with a movie? Would this sour your stance on the series if the story came to a close in theaters? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of the Titans.
Ghibli’s previous film didn’t have Miyazaki at the helm but was discussed by fans thanks in part to being the first movie that the studio created using computer-generated graphics. Earwig And The Witch told a story that would fit right in with its predecessors, introducing a young girl who discovers a world of witches and the supernatural but had a decidedly different aesthetic than what we had seen from Ghibli previously.
Studio Ghibli’s amusement park has kept fans in the know when it comes to the opening of its doors, with the locale set to have the following areas within its walls: “Hill of Youth, Ghibli’s Large Warehouse, Mononoke’s Village, Valley of Witches and Dondoko Forest,” With Ghibli being known for its lush environments and detailed animation in its properties, it will definitely be interesting to see how the movies are translated into the real world and if the theme park venture will ultimately be a success.
