The rise of Hiro Mashima's "Fairy Tail" franchise has been growing ever since its debut back in 2009. Since then, it has become a part of Japan's most recognizable franchises thanks to beloved heroes of the Fairy Tail guild: Natsu, Happy, Lucy, Erza and Gray. However being a hit long-running anime series, "Fairy Tail" has been quite slow in releasing feature-length films.
Although, that's all going to change as 2017 will be an opportune year for studio GAGA distribution studio GAGA just gave its fans a new exciting update about the project. And it looks like it's worth the wait.
