What is the Black Clover movie about?
Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King’s plot follows a new story in which Wizard Kings from the past have been resurrected and want world domination.
As mentioned above, this movie isn’t part of the anime series or the original Black Clover manga. Instead, it’s a new story that has been written by Yūki Tabata. In the film, Asta and his friends have to face off against Conrad Leto, Julius Novachrono’s predecessor as the Wizard King.
Conrad plans to use the “Imperial Sword” to bring back three other Wizard Kings — Edward Avalaché, Princia Funnybunny, and Jester Garandaros — in order to take over the Clover Kingdom. As you can imagine, Asta isn’t about to let their evil plans take shape, and a full-out magic war begins.
