Sony Music Entertainment Japan has released the idol group 9nine’s music video for “colorful”, the theme song for Star Driver the Movie. The video features new footage of the film.
The film will open in Japan on 9 February. Described on the website as a “new construction” of the Star Driver Kagayaki no Takuto story, the film will focus on the fates of Takuto, Wako, and Sugata; the film will also have an all-new section about their lives set after the story of the television series.
“Colorful” is the first song 9nine have recorded for a film, but they previously performed theme songs for the original Star Driver anime series. As the name would suggest, 9nine originally had nine members when the group was formed in 2005, but now it only has five members – actress Umika Kawashima, Uki Satake, Hirona Murata, Kanae Yoshii and Sayaka Nishiwaki. The group also performed the ending theme song “White wishes” for My Little Monster and theme song “Chikutaku☆2NITE” for the live-action Ranma ½ television special.
