A big incident has occurred in the peaceful Skyland!? The young princess Elle-chan has been snatched away by the monsters of the Andaagu Empire! A brave young girl, Sora, follows the princess to a mysterious hole. The hole leads to Solasido City in another world…? Television? A car? Is that a magic tool!?!? But there’s no time to be surprised! I have to get the Princess back to her castle…! Fly between two worlds! The adventures of the Precure are about to begin! It’s time for our heroes!
The key visual features four new Precure girls – Cure Sky, Cure Prism, Cure Wing, and Cure Butterfly:
