Then we have TOHO who does not back away when tasked with making a film that tops the chart. Be it My Hero Academia, Godzilla, or heck it, the biggest anime standalone phenomena worldwide – Your Name. 

For all you care, TOHO is now greenlit for the production of a Psycho-Pass season 3 prequel Movie – Psycho-Pass: Providence. Psycho-Pass announced a 10th-anniversary project which will launch this October. Production I.G Is animating it with TOHO Distributing the movie.

Where Can We Watch The Film?

One should be able to watch the film on Amazon Prime given that Amazon Prime has taken the distribution rights of the last film and season. Although there is a possibility for it to be amazon exclusive, there’s a chance Crunchyroll will premiere it worldwide on their platform.

What WIll Psycho-Pass Providence Be About?

I.G Production developed the previous film within only a few months of being announced. It followed Arata Shindo and Kei Mikhail Ignatov who are entangled with the MWPSB. The agency’s foundations are shaken given that the agency had become too complacent, the cause being the Sibyl system. The Sibyl system is put to test.

The previous film ended when Akane initiated with Ignatov and Shindo the story of what happened two years ago. Akane proceeded to have a conversation with Ignatov and Shindo after being released from prison. During that conversation, she mentioned that she would tell them what happened “two years ago”.

The film will probably start off with the story started by Akane. Although it’s my bet that the film is not entirely a prequel story, but only contains segments of the past while also divulging into the present hence being a sequel to First Inspector.
