The upcoming two-part Re:cycle of the Penguindrum movie has released a trailer for its first part, Kimi no Ressha wa Seizon Senryaku, which features some new footage that were not part of the original Penguindrum series. The trailer also previews the second part’s theme song “Boku no Sonzai Shoumei” by Etsuko Yakushimaru Metro Orchestra.

Additionally, character designs of Momoka Oginome in the costume of the Princess of the Crystal, the new penguin Princhupenguin (Sumire Uesaka), and the young versions of Kanba and Shoma were also released.

Re:cycle of the Penguindrum is described as a reconstruction of 2011’s Penguindrum that also features new scenes. Re:cycle of the Penguindrum: Kimi no Ressha wa Seizon Senryaku will premiere on April 29 in Japan.

As with the 2011 series, the staff credits includes Kunihiko Ikuhara as director, Terumi Nishii as character designer, Lily Hoshino as original character designer, Kunio Tsujita as color designer, Studio Kokoro’s Chieko Nakamura as art director, Graphinica’s Takeo Ogiwara as photography director, and Yukari Hashimoto as music composer. Penguindrum episode director Nobuyuki Takeuchi is serving as assistant director for Re:cycle of the Penguindrum: Kimi no Ressha wa Seizon Senryaku, while animator Tomomi Kawatsuma is the movie’s other character designer. However, Lapin Track is the animation production company instead of Brain’s Base this time (Lapin Track was founded by former Brain’s Base members).

Meanwhile, the returning cast includes Subaru Kimura as Kanba Takakura, Ryouhei Kimura as Shouma Takakura, Miho Arakawa as Himari Takakura, Marie Miyake as Ringo Oginome, Akira Ishida as Keiju Tabuki, Mamiko Noto as Yuri Tokikago, Yui Horie as Masako Natsume and Esmeralda, and Yutaka Koizumi as Sanetoshi Watase, and Aki Toyosaki as Momoka Oginome.

HiDive describes the series as:

Is destiny a matter of chance or a matter of choice? All Kanba and Shouma know is that to keep their terminally ill sister Himari alive they must find the mysterious Penguindrum.
