|Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection|
|Released||July 22, 2017|
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection (魔法少女リリカルなのはReflection) is the third theatrical anime film in the MGLN franchise. Unlike the previous two films, it will not adapt an existing story (such as StrikerS) but instead feature an original storyline, taking some cue from the plot of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's Portable: The Gears of Destiny but adding original storylines and characters, as well. It will be the first part of a two-part story, with the second part yet to be announced.
The movie was formerly titled Magical Girl Lyrical NANOHA The MOVIE 3rd Reflection (魔法少女リリカルなのは The MOVIE 3rd Reflection), picking up from The MOVIE 2nd A's. On October 2, 2016 (the same day ViVid Strike! went on air), a TV advertisement was released that removed "The MOVIE 3rd" from the planned title, to avoid confusion regarding whether the movie is another existing story remake. It is unclear whether this could mean that the movie takes place in the primary continuity of the TV anime series, although with the reveal of the Florian sisters' involvement, it instead seems to bridge the movie and portable continuities.
The story takes place three months after the ending of The MOVIE 2nd A's, with Nanoha and her friends attending 5th grade during the summer of 0067. At the same time, the world of Eltria is slowly destroying, same as the setting in The Gears of Destiny.
