The tweet links over to an official notice page from the production committee stating that due to the coronavirus outbreak, and the policies being encouraged by the government, they have decided to postpone the release to reduce further spread of the infection.
They don’t have a release date at the moment, and will further update fans when they have more information. They also released an accompanying video to help further get the point across.
Originally they updated fans about the cancellation of the premiere at the Tokyo Sky Tree J: COM Wonder Studio, which was supposed to exhibit the movie from March 9th through March 20th.
They noted on March 13th that the exhibition at the Tokyo Sky Tree was postponed, but that the film wasn’t delayed. However, they later followed up with the official announcement stating that the premiere has been pushed back for now until further notice.
Pretty Cure Miracle Leap joins many other shows, anime, and movies that have also had their premieres delayed due to the coronavirus, including but not limited to Mulan, James Bond: No Time To Die and Fast & Furious 9 to name a few.
