The film will pick up directly after the events of the series’ first compilation film, Journey’s Dawn, and will adapt the latter half of the original anime series that aired in 2017.
Sentai Filmworks describes the film as follows:
MADE IN ABYSS: Wandering Twilight follows Riko and Reg on their adventure through the Abyss, picking up directly after the events of MADE IN ABYSS: Journey’s Dawn. The mystery surrounding her mother’s death deepens as Riko learns more about the truth of her origins. More determined than ever to travel to the bottom of the Abyss, Riko and Reg leave Ozen’s Seeker Camp and delve into the treacherous Third Layer — and beyond, to depths brimming with supernatural creatures, unexpected allies and deadly enemies.
First released in Japan in January 2019, the Made in Abyss films are part of a re-adaptation effort given to the series, culminating in the adaptation of new material for the third film titled Dawn of the Deep Soul.
The third film currently has a tentative Japanese release window of 2020, while a U.S. release has yet to be confirmed.
