New Code Geass project in the works

From AnimeNewsNetwork:

Sunrise announced at the Code Geass 10th Anniversary event on Sunday that the franchise is getting its “next project,” as well as a three-part compilation anime film series. Below is the visual announcing the next project:

The next project is titled Code Geass: Fukkatsu no Lelouch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection), but the announcement did not reveal the format of the project.

The three-part film series will recap all 50 episodes of the original Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion series and the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 sequel series. The cast are re-recording all their lines for the films, and the films will include new scenes. The first film will open in 2017.

Looking forward to the new CLAMP art for this and hopefully a second artbook will finally be released.

2017 is looking good for us CLAMPers. We deserve it after the long draught we’ve been through for the past few years.

The design is the same as the original series. I just don’t understand the green choice here. I feel like some other color would have been a better choice for this cover.

It goes on sale on December 2 along with a special limited edition that comes with a mangaka set. Here is a preview of its contents:

And by the way, it seems that Kodansha is releasing a Card Captor Sakura Popular Book Set with 4 books of limited release together in one batch. This is your chance to get them all in case you still don’t have them. Release is scheduled for mid-December and CD Japan has it for pre-order.

Update: Higher resolution pictures added.
