This past weekend, the Yuri!!! on Ice public relations Twitter account announced that the upcoming Yuri!!! on Ice movie will be called Yuri!!! on Ice the Movie: ICE ADOLESCENCE.
The announcement tweet contained the first official movie poster for the project. It shows Viktor walking across a snowy stretch of land towards what appears to be a body of water. His dog, Makkachin, is far ahead of him. Because Viktor is featured on the poster, fans are speculating that this will be a film about Viktor’s youth as an ice skater at some point before he met Yuri Katsuki, the protagonist of the original anime series.

The announcement tweet also came with a promotional contest. Ten followers of the account that respond to the announcement tweet with a positive message and the hashtag ”
#ユーリ映画化” will be entered in a lottery to win a poster from the movie. The deadline to follow and comment is July 4 at 11:59 PM, Japan time. The announcement tweet has also been repeated in several different languages on YOI‘s PR account, so it doesn’t look like many countries will be locked out of the contest due to a language barrier.
The film is slated for release in 2019, but little else is known about it at this time.
