So a possible release date for the movie Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale may have been leaked by the Aeon Cinema Dainichi Theater in Osaka Japan according to Anime News Network. There was a trailer revealed and the returning cast were confirmed. The sorry takes place after the Mother’s Rosario arc and the confirmed characters are

  • Kirito
  • Asuna
  • Sinon
  • Klein (possibly hinting at more screen time for him)
  • Lisbeth
  • Silica

The odd thing is that 3 of the confirmed characters rarely get screen time. Those characters being Klein, Lisbeth, and Silica another odd fact is that Suguha isn’t listed to be confirmed. Aniplex describes the movie’s plot:

In 2026, two years since the SAO incident, a new game called “Oridinal Scale,” an Augmented-Reality MMO, is becoming popular among the players. But…strange things are happening in the game and Kirito and the gang are facing a new danger. A brand new story created by the original author, Reki Kawahara and directed by Tomohiko Ito, “Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale-” is coming to theaters in Spring 2017.
