To support the impending release of the film adaptation to The Irregular at Magic High School (or Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei), The Irregular at Magic High School: The Movie ~The Girl Who Calls the Stars~, Aniplex has published a new trailer for the film on the official Aniplex YouTube page. The longform trailer features the film’s theme by GARNIDELiA, “Speed Star”. Unfortunately, at the time of posting, neither the trailer nor the Aniplex Japan YouTube page are accessible from the US (where I’m writing this piece.) Fortunately, I did find a mirror. You can check out the new trailer below:
The Irregular at Magic High School: The Movie ~The Girl Who Calls the Stars~ is slated to hit theaters June 17th in Japan. The film follows an original story that is set to take place between the 10th and 11th volume of the novel series. For reference, the anime covered events of the first seven novels with the exclusion of volume 5.
The Irregular at Magic High School began as a web novel series in 2008. Since that time, the series has produced twenty volumes of light novels and a twenty-six episode anime series that aired in 2014. At the time of writing, both Crunchyroll and Hulu have the full series available to stream. For those unfamiliar, Hulu describes the series:

This spring, a very peculiar brother and sister enroll as new students. The brother is an under achiever with some deficiencies and enrolls as a “Weed,” while his younger sister is an honor student, who enrolls as a “Bloom.” The brother, with a somewhat philosophical expression, and the younger sister who holds feelings a little stronger than sibling love for him… Ever since these two have entered through the gates of this prestigious school, the calm campus was beginning to change…
