The anime movie will be screened in approximately 300 U.S. and 12 Canadian locations during its limited theatrical release – on Monday, August 14 in Japanese with English subtitles only then in English dub only on August 16, August 17 (Canada only) and August 19 (matinee screening).

Natsu is known as the one and only fire-breathing Dragon Slayer, but this next adventure will take him to the next level. Luckily, he still has his trusty team by his side: Happy, a flying cat; Gray, an ice mage; Erza, a knight who switches armor and abilities mid-battle; and Lucy, a wizard who fights with a set of celestial spirits.
When these Fairy Tail members first joined forces, they formed a team no one could topple. But this next mission could be their last.
Enter the Dragon Cry, a magic staff rumored to possess the power to destroy the world. For years, it’s been safely guarded in the Kingdom of Fiore until Zash, a traitor of Fiore, steals it and delivers it to Animus in the Kingdom of Stella. Now it’s up to the gang to infiltrate the Stella Kingdom and retrieve the staff. It seems like it should be an easy job, but what they uncover isn’t what they expected.
Advanced tickets and theater location information for “Fairy Tail: Dragon Cry” is available at the official website funimatonfilms.com/fairytail.
