The time has come for SABATON to reveal some BIG NEWS.  The band is beyond proud to announce that for the last two years, they have been busy working on an exciting, large-scale project.
In 2023, SABATON will release The War To End All Wars movie, a full-length musical motion picture featuring songs from the band’s 10th studio album, The War To End All Wars. This movie vividly tells the stories of World War I by way of animation and live action. It will give the viewer a better understanding of what the band’s songs on the album are about — it is a musical and historical adventure.
Currently in post-production, the movie is being made in collaboration with Yarnhub Animation Studio.  SABATON previously worked with them on other projects, including their most recent animated story video for ‘The Red Baron‘.
The War To End All Wars movie is on a completely different scale that neither the band nor Yarnhub have ever attempted before. 
As the band has said, you’re going to want to see this!
