A new movie from the Slam Dunk anime series has received its official premiere date of December 3 and the title, The First Slam Dunk. The creator of the original manga, Takehiko Inoue, will be directing the film and writing the script alongside Toei Animation.

Slam Dunk first appeared in Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jump manga magazine in 1990 and later was adapted into an anime TV series airing from 1993 to 1996. Before the recent announcement, Slam Dunk received four anime movie sequels with the last film released in July of 1995.
