In 2019, a spin-off film was released in Japan, and it was quickly followed by a second film entitled, Violet Evergarden: The Movie in 2020.

What Should Fans Know Before Watching Violet Evergarden Movie?
It has been said that the second movie is the final chapter of the franchise. This may come as sad news for fans who love the show. Those who have not watched season one of Violet Evergarden, on the other hand, should take note of these before watching the movie.
The main story is set after the war. Viewers will feel that once the story starts. The characters themselves deal with how they should continue their lives after that tragedy. Viewers will also notice that some of Violet’s clients are connected with the previous war.
We mentioned that Violet has clients. But what does that mean? What does Violet do? In the story, Violet is an Auto Memory Doll. Her role is to write on behalf of her clients. The said clients can ask a doll to do their work and deliver the project themselves. Most of the dolls enjoy their job as it gives them a chance to travel the world.
The job varies from ghostwriting to transcribing information. The doll should know what the client really wants to say for the letter to be concise with the client. Violet had issues with this before as she had trouble understanding her clients. As a doll, Violet soon learned about love. Speaking of love, Major Gilbert is the love interest of Violet. During the war, he was in charge of her.
In one instance, she saves both of them from the ambush but suffered intense injuries. He tried to convince her to live a free life and even confessed his feelings for her before saving her from falling debris. When she woke up, his body was gone.
What happens next is revealed in the movie. Fans will finally know if Major is still alive and if they end up together.
