To celebrate the digital debut of Promare, GKIDS is assembling the English voice cast for an online watch party on Tuesday, April 21. The Studio TRIGGER feature caught fire when it premiered in theaters last year, launching a truly unbelievable amount of fan art of its two main characters, Galo Thymos and Lio Fotia.
To participate in the #PromareWatchParty, fans just have to load up their digital copies of Promare and press play at the same time as the cast at 9:00 PM ET. From there, anyone can follow along with the fandom using the Twitter hashtag above, which will include reactions, Q&A, and even special giveaways from distributor GKIDS.

Check out the trailer below, along with the official movie synopsis.
The first feature-length film from the acclaimed Studio TRIGGER, creators of the hit series KILL la KILL and Little Witch Academia, and director Hiroyuki Imaishi (GURREN LAGANN, KILL la KILL), Promare uses a bold cel-shaded visual style to tell a blistering action-adventure story, and is the spiritual successor to many of director Imaishi’s former works.Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins.
