In our review of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica series, we called it "a series which is worthy of the praise, worthy of the awards and worthy of all future success which will undoubtedly follow" and follow they have. So much so that Madman and Aniplex of America have joined forces to release the feature films in Australian cinemas next month.

MADMAN ACQUIRES PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA Movies
Premiere SCREENINGS in AUSTRALIAN CINEMAS December.
Madman Entertainment, in collaboration with Aniplex of America, are proud to announce the acquisition of the PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA movies, PART 1: BEGINNINGS and PART 2: ETERNAL. Both films will premiere in cinemas across four states on December 9th, 2012. The exclusive, one day only screenings will take place in Sydney (Dendy Newtown), Melbourne (Cinema Nova), Brisbane (Dendy Portside) and Canberra (Dendy Canberra) on December 9th, 2012. Tickets to the double-feature screenings will be available to purchase from the venues. PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA follows the story of a young girl named Madoka Kaname. One fateful day, Madoka is offered the opportunity to gain magical powers if she agrees to make a contract with a strange little being known as a Kyubey. The Kyubey will also grant Madoka one wish, but in exchange she shall risk her life by accepting the responsibility of fighting witches. Little does Madoka know the real risks of what this contract has in-store for her. The not-so-typical story of Madoka Kaname and her choice to become a ‘magical girl’ has taken the world by storm – becoming one of the most loved anime properties of 2011/2012. Part 1 and Part 2 of the MADOKA MAGICA movies retell the plot of the original TV series, and will provide a fantastic experience for both fans who have enjoyed the TV series or those who are just seeing it for the first time. The PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA movies will also be released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital Download in 2013.
