Spy x Family movie announces two more cast members
The official website for the upcoming Spy X Family movie announced two new cast members and characters for the film on Friday, September 22, 2023. The upcoming film is titled Code: White. This news comes roughly two weeks after another announcement of new cast members and characters joining the film, which is set to premiere later this year.
The Spy x Family movie is said to be an all-new work with an original story, with the original manga’s creator, author, and illustrator Tatsuya Endo heavily involved with the film’s production. As a result, the general consensus and belief amongst fans is that the film’s events will be considered canon, but this has yet to be confirmed in any official capacity.
In any case, excitement for the Spy x Family movie is reaching an all-time high amongst fans as its late December 2023 premiere date draws closer with every passing week. Fans are also incredibly excited for the return of the mainline television anime series, which is set to begin its second season on Saturday, October 7, 2023, in Japan.
