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 will center on the Sacred Kingdom, based on the events of the light novel.

For many years, the Sacred Kingdom has enjoyed peace and serenity thanks to the colossal wall built in the aftermath of a historic tragedy.

Citizens, on the other hand, believe that their peace is borrowed.

When the demon Jaldabaoth arrives with his unified army of monstrous tribes, the Sacred Kingdom knows 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.

The Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie is, in fact, 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 gaps 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.

The Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie will not be a direct sequel to the anime's recently released fourth season though.

The events will take place between Episodes 7 and 8, and will reveal what Demiurge has been up to in the background while Albedo is preoccupied with diplomatic relations and public affairs.

The events of the film are mostly self-contained so they will have no effect on an anime-only viewer.

The Overlord: Holy Kingdom Arc Movie is expected to be released in Japanese theaters soon.

It will most likely not be available on streaming services for the time being, as the film will likely take its time in theaters before being released on Blu-ray and DVD if it is well received.

However, because Crunchyroll has been hosting all the previous seasons of Overlord, it is likely that it will be available on the streaming platform at a later date.

When the news is confirmed, it will therefore not come as a surprise.

For now, you can watch Overlord Season 4 on Crunchyroll with English subtitles or in the English dub.
