The highly popular anime franchise, Spy x Family, is ready to captivate audiences with its movie spin-off titled Spy x Family Code: White.

In addition, Loid plans a vacation for the family as part of his undercover mission, Operation Strix, leading them on an adrenaline-filled adventure to save the world.
Moreover, the Spy x Family movie trailer also offers glimpses of Anya’s confectionary skills and a mysterious treasure chest containing a piece of chocolate.

From the initial look of the movie, the spin-off promises the same level of excitement and hope as the anime series.
The Spy x Family movie will premiere in Japanese theaters on December 22, 2023. Stay tuned for release dates in other territories, including the United States.
This Spy x Family movie will mark the franchise’s first theatrical release. The announcement was made at Jump Festa 2023 in March. Moreover, this came alongside the confirmation of the second season of the anime series, set to premiere in October. Takashi Katagiri will direct it and Ichiro Okouchi will serve as the film’s writer.
Moreover, the film will feature an entirely original story by Tatsuya Endo. Tatsuya Endo is the creator of the original manga and its characters. Unlike the series, the spin-off movie will deviate from the manga. This makes it an exciting watch for both existing fans and newcomers to the franchise.
