Bandai Picks Up 'The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya' Movie

Bandai announced today that they have picked up the North American distribution rights for the 'The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya' movie from Kadokawa Pictures.

The film is based on the fourth light novel in Haruhi Suzumiya series written by Nagaru Tanigawa. The story takes place after the conclusion of TV season 2 and tells the story of Haruhi’s sudden disappearance and her friend Kyon’s attempt to untangle the mystery of why she has vanished.

Bang Zoom will be dubbing the film for Bandai's DVD release, which will will be coming out later this year.

Synopsis: It is mid-december, and SOS Brigade chief Haruhi Suzumiya announces that the Brigade is going to hold a Christmas party in their clubroom, with Japanese hotpot for dinner. The brigade members Kyon, Yuki Nagato, Mikuru Asahina and Itsuki Koizumi start preparing everything for the party, such as costumes and decorations. But a couple of days later, Kyon arrives at school only to find that Haruhi is missing. Not only that, but Mikuru claims she has never known Kyon before, Koizumi is also missing, and Yuki has become the sole member of the literature club. The SOS Brigade seems to have never existed, nor has Haruhi Suzumiya. No one in the school has ever heard about her… except for Kyon.
