At the very least, the movie will continue Aoi’s journey from a production assistant to becoming a producer.
It won't be a recap movie. It will be an entirely new story continuing Miyamori's career to becoming a producer.

P.A. Work released this new image of Aoi to celebrate the announcement.

After finishing an amateur anime during High School, the group vows to work together again in the anime industry and go their separate paths into the industry, each in different fields. These girls will have to navigate the tumulous world of the anime production and forge on their path to hold their promise to each other.
There is no planned release date as of yet.
