The upcoming anime film Gold Kingdom and Water Kingdom will premiere at the Animation Is Film Festival in Los Angeles on October 21.

The upcoming film is being worked on by studio MADHOUSE. MADHOUSE is largely known for their work on titles like OverlordHigh School of the DeadCardcaptor Sakura, and more. The movie will be their latest film after this year’s title Goodbye, DonGlees!

You can check out the trailer here. (It’s surprisingly not region-locked)

You can read a summary of the movie from MyAnimeList below.

Once upon a time, there were two rival kingdoms that did not get along. Every day, they argued over insignificant matters. When a dispute over removing dog waste ultimately turned into a war, God swiftly intervened and directed the two nation’s leaders to exchange the most beautiful girl and the most intelligent young man for bride and bridegroom, respectively.

Saara, the princess of country A, meets the prince of country B, Naranbayar. As they pretend to be a married couple to protect the peace between the countries, they find themselves gradually falling in love.

While the film will make its premiere at the festival, a nation-wide English release has yet to be announced.
