Crunchyroll To Bring ‘Spy x Family Code: White’ To North American Theaters In 2024
Crunchyroll and Sony Entertainment issued the activation order for the international theatrical release of the Forger Family’s highly anticipated cinematic mission, Spy x Family CODE: White.
According to the Spy x Family official website (translated via Deep L), the Tatsuya Endo-written original standalone story of CODE White features the series protagonist and top Western Intelligence Service’s East Division (WISE) operative Loid Forger (CV: Takuya Eguchi, Shuuji Hanma in Tokyo Revengers) being discharged from his current mission, Operation Strix, in favor of a fellow agent who he surmises to be “an incompetent man.”
Left out to dry by WISE, Loid soon learns that the Eden Academy school his adoptive daughter Anya (CV: Atsumi Tanezaki, Chise Hatori in The Ancient Magus’ Bride) attends will be holding an open cooking competition for its students.
Hoping to use the opportunity to prove to his employers that he’s the right agent for Operation Strix, Loid encourages Anya to enter with the ‘melemele’, the favorite pastry of Eden Academy headmaster and contest judge Benedict Goodfellow.
In his quest to replicate the melemele’s flavor, Loid takes Anya and his ‘wife’, Yor (CV: Saori Hayami, Shinobou Kochou in Demon Slayer) on a family trip to the pastry’s homeland in the Frigis region.
Unfortunately, the Forger family’s winter getaway has a rocky start when Yor eavesdrops on Loid conversing with an unknown woman causes the assassin to feel insecure about her fake ‘cover’ marriage to the WISE agent.
The vacation takes an interesting turn on the train to Frigis, when Anya discovers a trunk onboard containing a single chocolate. After being startled by the trunk’s owner, the young esper accidentally swallows the chocolate – only to later discover the treat could potentially determine the fate of the world.
Based on an all new original story written by Spy x Family mangaka Tatsuya Endo and developed by WIT Studios and Cloverworks, Spy x Family: CODE White is directed by Spy x Family Season 1 anime’s assistant director Takashi Katagiri, with the film’s screenplay penned by Code Gease creator Ichirou Ookouchi.
Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures Entertainment are slated to release Spy x Family Code: White in North American theaters in both Japanese with English subtitles and English dub in 2024.
