Detective Conan: The Million-Dollar Signpost

The official website describes the teaser visual as:

The setting for this instalment is Hakodate, Hokkaido. Just above, we see Heiji and Kazuha gazing at each other with flushed cheeks. Immediately above them, Conan’s fateful rival, the enigmatic gentleman thief “Kaito Kid”, wears a fearless smile—a character intertwined with Heiji’s destiny. The scene suggests a romantic entanglement that won’t unfold in a straightforward manner.

Will Heiji finally confess his feelings to Kazuha in this film? What treasure does Kid target in Hokkaido? How does the iconic Goryokaku in Hokkaido depicted in the background and the title ‘The Five-Pointed Star’ relate to the story?

Chika Nagaoka will serve as the director, with screenplay by Takahiro Okura.
