A bit of background for those new to ‘SPY x FAMILY.’ The TV series made its debut on April 9, 2022. In a short span, it has captured the hearts of many. Following the story of a spy named Loid Forger (also known as Twilight) and his pretend family, the series dives deep into themes of secrets, identities, and the lengths one would go to for a mission. And now, with the upcoming film, there’s a twist. Loid tries to take his family on a winter trip, but things go sideways when Anya, their daughter, unintentionally gets involved in his covert operations.
Behind the scenes? The movie’s brought to life by director Takashi Katagiri and writer Ichiro Okouchi, with the original story from Tatsuya Endo. When it comes to animation, it’s a joint effort between two big names: WIT STUDIO and CloverWorks. Both have an impressive track record, with shows like “Attack on Titan” and “Black Butler” under their belts.
