Goodbye, Don Glees!  is the first original feature from writer/director Atsuko Ishizuka, best known for her animated series A Place Further Than The Universe. Produced by Studio Madhouse, the animated film follows the story of three friends over the course of one summer, as their backyard adventures turn one small incident into a life-changing journey.

In the film, teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop call themselves the “Don Glees,” an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. But, as disaster strikes their expedition, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life.

Released February 2022 in Japan, the movie stars Japanese voice actors Ayumu Murase (Haikyu!!); Natsuki Hanae (Demon Slayer); Kana Hanazawa (Psycho-Pass); and Yuuki Kaji (Attack on Titan).

The English dub cast features Adam McArthur (Roma); Nick Wolfhard (Toto); Jonathan Leon (Drop); Victoria Grace (Tivoli); Barbara Goodson (Mrs. Ando); Stephanie Sheh (Roma’s mother); Alan Lee (Roma’s father); and Laura Stahl (Toto’s sister).
