The Holy Kingdom is getting a new drama


Overload fans finally get a glimpse of what the new movie, The Holy Kingdom, has in store with the release of the first key teaser visual.

The first teaser image for Overlord: The Sacred Realm finally fell.

The visual features protagonist Ainz Ooal Gown menacingly in the background. The new film was announced in May last year, but many details about the project, including the creative team, character voice actors, and release date, have yet to be confirmed. Based on the title, many have speculated that The Holy Kingdom will adapt the light novel series’ “The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom” story arc, which sees the Roble Holy Kingdom being invaded by a group of demi-humans.

When he stubbornly refuses to log out when the game must be stopped for good, Momonga finds himself trapped in YGGDRASIL alongside his NPCs, who begin to develop real sentience. Unable to return to his life in the real world, the player decides to assume the identity of his character, Ainz Ooal Gown and sets out to see if other players are trapped as well.
