The first animated Puella Magi Madoka Magica work since Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion, it features the return of the full Madoka Magica cast and staff. According to SHAFT CEO Kubota, the concept movie will be the core of a new Madoka Magica project, and serves as its trailer.

Presently, the concept movie remains legally unavailable to the public outside of the screening at Madogatari, and no announcement has been made of a streaming/home video release.

Production Note, Image Note, page 115
  • Studio SHAFT often begin an anime production with a single "image board" to capture the mood and atmosphere of an anime. Kubota describes this concept movie as an "extravagant" animated image board for the future Madoka Magica project.
  • Madoka's ballet solo was based on "The Dying Swan," originally choreographed by Mikhail Fokine in 1905.
  • Kubota compares Mami's role to Guan Yu from The Romance of Three Kingdoms.
  • The Witch of Despair was a planned form of Kriemhild Gretchen in the original TV series.
