Yes, the cult favourite series "Gintama" (銀魂) is getting a second movie made, which will act as a finale to the anime series.
Gintama (written by Hideaki Sorachi) originally started as a manga series in "Weekly Shonen Jump", about the adventures of a carefree samurai, Gintoki Sakata, in a world where aliens invaded Japan in the edo period. Over 44 milllion copies of the manga novels have been sold, and the TV anime had a run for 7 years in total. It's meta-narrative, references to pop culture and more successful manga make it one of my personal favourite comedy series.
Quite little has been revealed about the story of the movie. But from what snippets of information we are drip fed, the film is set some years in the future of the original anime series but will also be an origin story of Gintoki when he was in the Rebellion fighting against the Alien invasion.
