A well-known Japanese leaker pointed out on Twitter that the upcoming announcement of the franchise based on the manga written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki, Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins), will be a two-part animated film produced by Netflix and titled “Nanatsu no Taizai: Ensa no Edinburgh (The Edinburgh Resentment) “. According to the leak, it will be an original story written by himself Nakaba Suzuki, with the first film scheduled for 2022 and starring Tristan, the son of Meliodas and Elizabeth Liones.
The leak also pointed out that the production will be in CG animation, since the user reported that “seemed to be watching Ni no Kuni’s game screen“. It is worth noting that there are now two leaks about the next announcement of this franchise, as another indicates that it will be an adaptation of the manga Mokushiroku no Yonkishi (Four Knights of the Apocalypse). Be it one, be the other, or be both, it remains to wait until next November 10 in Japan for official confirmation (It is also possible that the first leak has confused the themes, since being starring Tristan would serve as a connection between Nanatsu no Taizai and Mokushiroku no Yonkishi).
On the other hand, Nanatsu no Taizai, is a manga written and illustrated by Nakaba Suzuki that was published in the magazine Weekly Shonen Magazine from the publisher Kodansha between October 2012 and March 2020, with a total of 41 compiled volumes. A sequel titled Mokushiroku no Yonkishi (Four Knights of the Apocalypse) is in publication. It should be remembered that the video game for smartphones The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross is available in the catalog of QooApp on this link.
