It turns out that the huge Black Clover movie almost had Captain Yami Sukehiro’s native Land of the Sun make an appearance.

This original plot wasn’t featured in manga or the TV anime adaptation.

The summer season was launched by the massive new film Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King, which brought back the beloved anime for some violent new battles. Asta and the other members of the group had to use all of their resources to battle these formidable new foes by resurrecting old Clover Kingdom Wizard Kings. But it almost told a very different tale.

Ayataka Tanemura, the director of of the Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King film, talked up about developing the unique plot for the new movie in a special interview with Netflix. This was created before Yuki Tabata disclosed the existence of the Land of the Sun in the final chapter of Black Clover’s manga, so Tanemura briefly pondered using Yami’s kingdom to ignite a brand-new conflict with the Clover Kingdom before deciding instead to bring back former Wizard Kings.

Ayataka Tanemura said the following:

“We started everything from three guiding principles, First, Asta had to win satisfying battles. Then, the time period should be the six months he trained in the Heart Kingdom. Third, we wanted to tell an exciting story in the style of the manga. We decided on those three things first. Since we imagined it would allow for expansive and exciting battle scenes, we eventually settled on the idea of fighting the four Wizard Kings.” 

“When we began production that story hadn’t yet been covered in the manga, but another idea was that there was a Wizard King from the Land of the Sun who builds an army and attacks the Clover Kingdom, leading to a big war.”

Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King anime film premiered on June 16, 2023 on Netflix.

The anime’s new cast members include:

  • Miyuki Sawashiro will play Princia
  • Houchu Ohtsuka will play Edward

The new Black Clover anime film’s staff includes:

  • Ayataka Tanemura as the Director
  • Itsuko Takeda as the Character Designer
  • Minako Seki as the Music Composer
