The good folks from anime distributors Anime Limited have sent us details of the upcoming release of the Spy x Family Code White Movie. The film is due to hit the UK and Ireland in selected cinemas from Friday 26th April 2024 in Japanese with English subtitles, and an English-language dub.

For the uninitiated Spy x Family is a hugely popular series, which started as manga and had a truly excellent TV anime adaptation. The series is set in a 1960's like world where rival nations Westalis and Ostania are in a state of cold war. Westalis spy codenamed Twilight takes on the identity of Loid Forger in order to get closer to the inner circle of Donovan Desmond leader of the National Unity Party. With all access to Desmond effectively closed off, the only route to meeting him is pretending to be a parent at Ostania's exclusive private school. So Twilight has to build a false family in order to so. He adopts Anya as his daughter, who unknown to him is a telepath and Yor, an assassin. While each is oblivious to each others secret, only telepathic child Anya is aware about the rest of her family's true identities.

We'd describe Spy x Family as an action comedy. We're really excited about this movie and if you love the TV show you're bound to encounter more of the same with this new movie. They've also made the effort for people new to the franchise so if you're not familiar with Operation Strix it looks like it'll form a great introduction into the world of Ostania.

Japan's heartfelt and action-packed #1 box office sensation opens wide across the UK & IRE from Friday 26th April!

London, UK, 8th March 2024 - Organising a family holiday can often feel like the world is at stake, but it really is for the most beloved family in anime, who are about to make their big screen debut! Opening to four consecutive weeks at #1 at the Japanese box office, Anime Limited and TOHO are excited to announce that the highly anticipated SPY x FAMILY CODE: White is releasing wide exclusively in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from Friday 26th April.

An action comedy about a makeshift family, SPY x FAMILY follows the talented spy Loid Forger, and Yor, an assassin who is as sweet as she is deadly, who have to play house to further their own ambitions - while being oblivious to the other's secret. The only person who knows the full story is Anya, their cheeky adopted daughter, who is a telepath. Jumping to the big screen with an all-new story supervised by the manga's original author Tatsuya Endo, SPY x FAMILY CODE: White serves as a perfect introduction to the series while also being an unmissable treat for fans.

The big screen debut for a series celebrated for its mix of heartfelt family moments and slick action, SPY x FAMILY CODE: White is directed by Takashi Katagiri (SPY x FAMILY Season 1) with a script by Ichiro Ohkouchi (Mobile Suit Gundam THE WITCH FROM MERCURY), and animation provided by WIT STUDIO (Attack on Titan Seasons 1-3) and CloverWorks (The Promised Neverland).

SPY x FAMILY is one of the hottest properties in Japan right now. Serialised since 2019, the original manga now has over 35 million copies in circulation and has earned critical acclaim, including two Eisner Award nominations. The series has also spawned a multimedia franchise, including an incredibly popular anime that recently concluded its second season, merchandise, stage adaptations, and video games.


He's a spy. She's an assassin. Together, Loid and Yor keep their double lives to themselves while pretending to be the perfect family. However, their adopted daughter Anya, a telepath, knows both of their exciting secrets unbeknownst to them. While under the guise of taking his family on a weekend winter getaway, Loid's attempt to make progress on his current mission Operation Strix proves difficult when Anya mistakenly gets involved and triggers events that threaten world peace!

SPY x FAMILY CODE: White will be released in selected cinemas across the United Kingdom and Ireland from 26th April 2024 in Japanese with English subtitles, and an English-language dub.
