Just when everyone was ready for the final movie to come out and they can say goodbye to their favorite anime, The official Twitter page of the anime announced 2 special episode prologue for the final movie. Gintama: The Semi-Final is a special is a two-episode series that will serve as a prequel to the final film. Gintama: The Final will be the last movie in the series.

Gintama: The Final Movie Plot
The FINAL MOVIE will be the end of the Gintama saga. It will continue from the last movie, Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya. It was a time-traveling saga where Gintoki was killed, and White Curse attacked the world. The movie ended when Gintoki and the white demon defeat the Emmi and the reunification of Gintoki, Kagura, and Shinpachi.
The movie's main plot has not been revealed yet so we can't say anything for sure. But the movie is being made with the full co-operation from Gintama writer Hideaki Sorachi. So, we can say that the movie will follow the chapters of the manga, and it is going to be a hell of a ride.
