The Overlord, Ainz Ooal Gown, Conquers the Holy Kingdom!
Ainz Ooal Gown aims to find more players in the new world, reveal more secrets, gain more knowledge and technology, and provide a utopia for all of his subjects who will help his endeavors in the new world!
The Paladin of the Sacred Kingdom Arc, as depicted in light novel volumes 12 and 13, will be covered in the Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie. The film will also be set between Episodes 7 and 8 of Overlord Season 4.
The Holy Kingdom Arc's events will center on the Sacred Kingdom, based on the events of the light novel.
Based on the teaser visual, the Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie will feature two key characters!
For many years, the Sacred Kingdom (Holy Kingdom) has enjoyed peace and serenity thanks to the colossal wall built in the aftermath of a historic tragedy.
However, the citizens believe that their peace is borrowed and that it will only be a matter of time before everything goes into chaos once again.
When the demon Jaldabaoth arrives with his unified army of monstrous tribes, the Sacred Kingdom admits that their defenses will be ineffective.
With no other option and all of their defenses exhausted, the pious must seek assistance from someone stronger than Jaldabaoth.
Even if it means breaking the rules and conversing with the undead king, Ainz Ooal Gown, the pious will go to any length to save the Sacred Kingdom and its people!
Will they ever defeat Jaldabaoth and his forces with the Sorcerer King's assistance?
If you've seen previous seasons of Overlord, you'll know that the demon Jaldabaoth is the alter ego of Demiurge, the floor guardian of Nazarick's seventh floor.
After his plans have been successful in E-Rantel, Demiurge now goes on the offensive to bring more territories under the rulership of Ainz Ooal Gown!

Is Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie Canon?
Yes, the Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie is canon. The new Overlord film will also not be a recap or compilation of previous seasons, unlike the first two films of the series.
It will not only adapt the events of the original light novel series, but it will also fill in the plot holes from Overlord Season 4.
Hence, it's critical to watch the Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie to learn what happened between Ainz Ooal Gown and the Sacred Kingdom.
Also note that Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie will not be a direct sequel to the anime's recently released fourth season.
In fact, the events will take place between Episodes 7 and 8 and will reveal what Demiurge has been up to on the sidelines while Albedo is preoccupied with diplomatic relations and public affairs.
The events of the film are mostly self-contained so they will not affect an anime-only viewer.
