Despite the conclusion of the Seven Deadly Sins anime, there is more in store for fans as the series returns with a two-part spin-off movie titled Grudge of Edinburgh.
The anime film is said to debut on Netflix on December 20, 2022.
Intense battles, sinister magic, and crass humor can be expected, just as they were in the original anime series.
The New PV Theme Song by Sawano Hiroyuki for the Anime Film “The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1” premieres on Netflix on December 20, and the film is available for streaming until January 5.
The franchise has already produced two films about the battles between the Seven Deadly Sins (Prisoners of the Sky and Cursed by Light).
The adorable offspring of Meliodas and Elizabeth, Tristan, will be the centre of attention in the forthcoming spin-off film, which follows him as he goes on a quest to find who he is.
The release date and new trailer for Seven Deadly Sins have generated even more excitement.
The film’s running time is unknown; however, earlier evidence suggests it lasts about 90 minutes.

ABOUT The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1
The project will feature a new original story written by original manga author Nakaba Suzuki, and will center on Meliodas’ son Tristan.
Netflix describes the story:
“14 years since the Kingdom of Liones defeated the Demon Clan and brought peace to the land, Prince Tristan is tormented by his inability to control two great powers: the Demon Clan power of his father, Meliodas, who served as captain of The Seven Deadly Sins as the Dragon Sin of Wrath, and the Goddess Clan power of his mother, Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth’s life is threatened, Tristan flees the kingdom and heads toward Edinburgh, where Deathpierce — who was once a member of a group of the kingdom’s Holy Knights, the Pleiades of the Azure Sky — maintains his castle. But what are Deathpierce’s intentions? The wheel of fate begins to move and sweeps up even The Seven Deadly Sins…“
The original Seven Deadly Sins series also has an anime adaptation with 4 seasons and 2 movies.
The first 2 seasons and Prisoners of the Sky movie were animated by A-1 Pictures.
Studio DEEN took over for seasons 3 and 4, and the latest movie Cursed by Light served as an anime-only sequel.
TV anime was a Netflix exclusive worldwide, while the movies had theatrical screenings in Japan.
All the seasons and both movies, as well as a special OVA series, are now available on Netflix. An anime adaptation of Four Knights of the Apocalypse was also announced earlier this year.
