Mappa Studios will be responsible for its creation, but all we really know at this point is that the movie’s going to happen. While that’s great news, it’s not exactly descriptive.

With the two of them close by his side, Yuri will take to the ice once more.”So go and give it a try before new details on the movie emerge!
