Black Clover bid goodbye to viewers in early 2021, about four years after it was initially broadcast, after ending the anime with 170 episodes. That didn’t stop the fanbase from rewatching the episodes, discussing, and reading the manga to find out what happens next.
All of their efforts resulted in the announcement of a feature film for the franchise. It has taken a long time, but additional information has finally been disclosed, with the most important detail being that it’s titled Black Clover Sword of the Wizard King.
We’re curious to see what misadventures await us in the Clover Kingdom, and we hope you are, too. So here’s everything you need to know about the film.

Although we are still determining if Leto will have a prominent role in the film, Asta was featured in the trailer. Julius had become the Wizard King by the time Asta acquired his abilities, and they’ve yet to mention Konrad, so it will be fascinating to see how Konrad fits into the grand scheme of things.
