With the digital-exclusive FunimationCon 2020 now over, North American anime publisher Funimation had one more surprise announcement for those tuning in. During the Attack on Titan voice actor panel, it was unveiled that they had acquired the rights to the film Attack on Titan ~Chronicle~. This is not a new chapter in the narrative, or a bridge between the third season and the upcoming final season. Instead, it serves as a recap movie chronicling and summarising the events of the first three seasons.
Teaming up with Kodansha, Funimation confirmed that Attack on Titan ~Chronicle~ will be made available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Ireland later this year. It is unclear whether this will be through a digital stream, home video release or a limited-time cinematic screening. My bet would be on the former option, given it is unclear when it would be reasonable to expect large crowds in cinemas following the pandemic.
The Attack on Titan voice actor panel was hosted by Josellie Rios, with voice actors Bryce Papenbrook (Eren), Trina Nishimura (Mikasa), Josh Grelle (Armin), Mike McFarland (ADR Director), J. Michael Tatum (Erwin) and Bryn Apprill (Christa/Historia) in attendance.
