Where did you watch this movie?

With their world wholly altered following the events of the first two Madoka Magica films, Homura and the other magical girls continue their lives fighting evil, in whatever form it may take, finding new purpose in life through their relationships with one another. But all is not as it seems in Mitakihara City. Familiar faces seem altered, while strangers watch every move the girls make from the shadows. The new order can't last forever, and rebellion is brewing. The fate of the universe lies solely in Homura's hands, and everything will change when she is ready to choose what she really desires.

Gen Urobuchi said the plot of the film also happens to mirror the lyrics to the Kalafina song, Magia, the original ending theme song to the TV series of which this film follows up from.

In August 2012 a picture of a magazine article detailing what appeared to be a new character was leaked online. As it turned out the article was a hoax perpetrated by Japanese social networking site, 2channel.

Contains 2300 shots, double the rate of a regular animated movie.

Gen Urobuchi first started writing this as a second season of the TV series; Puella Magi Madoka Magica (2011) but wasn't able to get the plot it out long enough to fill a 12 episode series.

This film reunites Yuki Kajiura and singer Aira Yuuki making it their first collaboration since 2005.

Grossed over One Billion Yen (US$10 Million) in two weeks making it the fastest film based on a late night television program to do so and beating the previous record holder, K-On! (2011). It eventually surpassed K-ON to become the highest grossing film based on a late night television program.

The film was rumored to be getting a summer 2013 release by men's fashion magazine "Smart." The magazine later reported on Twitter that this was an error.

Director Akiyuki Shinbo suggested to writer Gen Urobuchi to make Homura and Madoka become enemies in the end.
