The Spy x Family franchise confirmed at AnimeJapan 2023 that a theatrical film is in the pipeline and will be released this year. Here's everything you need to know about the Spy x Family Code: White movie, including the plot, release date, trailer, and much more!
To refresh your memory, Spy x Family is an anime series produced by Wit Studio and CloverWorks.
It follows the Forger family, led by the secret spy Loid Forger, his pretend wife Yor Forger, who is a secret assassin, and Anya Forger, their adopted telekinetic daughter. Will they ever discover each other's true identities?
What to Expect From Spy x Family Code: White
The Spy x Family Code: White movie, unlike other anime films that adapt a specific plot arc from the source material, will go a different route and present an original story.
This means that both anime fans and manga readers will go to the movies completely unaware of what is about to happen.
According to the synopsis listed on the Spy x Family Code: White official website, the Forger family will travel to a place identified as Frigis.
This comes after Loid pushed Anya to reproduce "Melemele," a Frigis Region confectionary.
After all, Eden Academy will host a culinary class in which students will compete for a Stella. According to Loid's intel, the principal who loves "Melemele" will be the primary judge.
Yor, on the other hand, will reassess her affection for Loid as she witnesses her faux husband speaking with a strange woman during the trip. What will happen to their relationship?
Ultimately, Anya accidentally swallows a piece of chocolate that holds vital information!
