Netflix plans to solidify its place as one of the anime streaming giants alongside Crunchyroll. The streaming service is already home to shows like Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean, Jujutsu Kaisen, Baki Hanma, Kengan Ashura, and many others. Another major anime on this list is The Seven Deadly Sins, which will return with a new movie.

The movie will presumably be set in the same timeline as the original anime, bringing us back to the world of Meliodas and Elizabeth, who are now happily together and parents. The movie will focus on Tristan, the son of Meliodas and Elizabeth.

Titled The Seven Deadly Sins: The Grudge of Edinburgh, the movie will arrive in two parts, the first of which will arrive in December this year.

A teaser for the Grudge of Edinburgh was revealed on Netflix Geeked Week 2022. The teaser publicizes that the story will be an original, from the mind of Nakaba Suzuki, along with a sneak of several new characters. Not much has been revealed about the plot of the movie, except the official description of the first part released by Netflix:

“Split into two parts, the story will follow Tristan, the son of The Seven Deadly Sins protagonists Meliodas and Elizabeth. Tristan inherits the power of the Goddess Clan and can heal people’s wounds and injuries, but he often ends up hurting others due to his inability to control his Demon Clan power. To protect his family, Tristan heads to Edinburgh Castle and meets a host of new friends along the way.”  

As the son of a demon on par with the Demon Lord and a human with the soul of a Goddess, Tristan is one of the strongest beings in all of Britannia. With the powers of the Goddess Clan, he can heal people, however, he often ends up hurting others due to his powers from the Demon Clan acting up. To protect his family, Tristan heads to Edinburgh Castle, encountering several new faces along the way.

Even More Seven Deadly Sins Coming Soon

Netflix has been the home for The Seven Deadly Since ever since the series was first animated. Despite being one of the most beloved anime, the series received some criticism for its animation in its latter seasons. Fans are still excited to get a chance to revisit the universe of Demons and Gods, and what better than a two-part film exploring the adventures of the future generation.

The Grudge of Edinburgh will also serve as a prequel to Four Knights of the Apocalypse, a spin-off story that takes place 16 years after the events of the original manga. When the original manga came to a bittersweet end in 2020, fans were greeted with this spin-off manga titled The Seven Deadly Sins: Four Knights of the Apocalypse in January 2021. Kodansha describes the series as:

Percival, a kind boy, lives with his grandfather in a remote place called “God’s Finger.” However, the world will not allow him to live in peace. An encounter with a mysterious knight changes their fate, and a shocking secret is revealed. The boy sets out on an endless journey. Whether you know “The Seven Deadly Sins” or not, you can still enjoy it! The world’s most awaited adventure fantasy!

Excited about the return of the Seven Deadly Sins. Stay tuned to learn more about the Grudge of Edinburgh.
