Speculation

The theories below have not been proven yet.
Please keep in mind that they are fanmade theories, and not official material.
  • Mami features heavily in the concept movie, possibly hinting towards her reprising Madoka's protagonist role in the new project.
  • Fan speculation about the plot goes as follows: Homura lied to Kyubey at the end of Rebellion as she didn't actually create a new universe - she simply used the stolen part of the Law of the Cycles to expand her witch barrier to encompass the entire universe. However, this seemingly requires an insane amount of energy to maintain and once the maze collapses, Madoka will return to being a cosmological principle, and Homura's efforts will be for naught. Knowing this, Homura aims to trick Mami into becoming the goddess of justice, effectively replacing Madoka's soul with Mami's so that the former could remain in the world once the devil loses her grip on the universe.
  • The live and dead cats talked about in the dialogue may be referring to Kyubey.
  • The magical girls shown in the trailer may be magical girl forms of witches already seen in the anime and other media.
  • Based on dialogue, Hitomi could play a bigger role in the movie. She could already be a magical girl or become one.
