On a Tokyo event for the anime film High Speed! -Free! Starting Days-, the franchise announced that Free! will get two anime compilation films and a new anime movie! Both compilation films will include new footage; the first film will focus on the members of the Iwatobi Swim Club (Free! -Timeless Medley- Kizuna) and the second on Rin and Sousuke (Free! -Timeless Medley- Yakosuku).
The theme song for the first compilation film will be performed by Style Five. The song is called Rising Free.
The new anime film will be called Free! -Take Your Marks-, and it will be a direct sequel to the Free! Timeless Medley compilation films. It will take place in early spring, just in time for Haruka’s graduation. It is scheduled to premiere in Japanese theaters in Fall 2017.
