YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT in theaters on October 15 only
YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT, the first English-language film based on the global phenomenon YO-KAI WATCH™, will be in select theaters for one day only on Saturday, October 15.
The film, based on the hit show airing on Disney XD, follows Nate Adams and his Yo-kai friends, Whisper and Jibanyan, as they’re transported to the past to help Nate's grandfather, Nathaniel, battle evil Yo-kai and invent the Yo-kai Watch. YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT also introduces a new Yo-kai — Hovernyan, a floating blue cat who is Nathaniel's heroic companion.
In its initial release in Japan, YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE was so popular that it set a box office record for advance ticket sales and was the highest-grossing Japanese film in 2015. For this special cinema event, the film will be released in 300 select movie theaters in North America for one day only, in partnership with ELEVEN ARTS and Fathom Events.
YO-KAI WATCH: THE MOVIE EVENT attendees will also have a chance to receive a limited-edition Hovernyan YO-MOTION YO-KAI MEDAL, while supplies last.
Ticketing at select theaters is available now. For a full list of theaters, visit Fathom Events' site.
