Netflix just released the first movie from The Seven Deadly Sins entitled “Prisoners of the Sky.” Netflix also released the second full season of The Seven Deadly Sins recently. Based on the manga by Nakaba Suzuki, The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai) tells the story of a group of knights from the Britannia region. They were disbanded after the plotted a coup of the Liones Kingdom.
The film was produced by A-1 Pictures (Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry, Fate/Apocrypha) and was released in theaters in Japan on August 18, 2018. Personally, I’m just getting into the series, but I’m excited to begin reading the manga. This movie was released just in time and I will review it later this week. If you want to know what the movies about check out the summary below:
“We are in a world where the Fairies, Goddesses and Demons exist. The ones who saved the Liones kingdom that was brought to the brink of destruction by the Demons’ secret maneuvers were the legendary order of criminals and knights “the Seven Deadly Sins” and one princess. And some time has elapsed since the peace was brought to the Liones kingdom.
To celebrate the kingdom’s anniversary, the Seven Deadly Sins arrived at a border territory looking for an elusive ingredient, the sky fish. In the middle of searching it, their captain Meliodas and the pig Hawk who speaks the human language get sent up to the Sky Temple, the celestial world lying high in the sky, above clouds.
The “Sky Winged ones” who possess wings dwell that temple. Meliodas was mistaken by them as the young boy who broke a law and thrown in jail.
In the Sky Temple is being prepared the ceremony aimed at preventing the liberation of the ferocious beast that has been sealed away for three thousand years. But the strong Demon group “Six Knights of Black” led by Bellion turns up with designs against the Sky Winged ones’ lives in order to break the seal. To protect everyone from these inhumanely cruel guys, Meliodas and the others clash against the Six Knights of Black.”wiki
