Suzaku is Lelouch’s childhood friend who believed that the Britannia Empire was not worth serving. Nonetheless, he aided them during battles, hoping that the empire’s way of doing things could be changed and improved.

Karen seemed to feel the same way as Suzaku because she became a member of a resistance group against Britannia. Despite the criticism, the empire continuously ruled the way they wanted and captured C.c. She is the immortal girl who can grant the power called Geass which allows its users to influence people’s minds through their thoughts, memory, and perception. The trailer via YouTube also featured the protagonists and teased a few scenes that will be included in the upcoming first film. It previewed Lelouch as Zero who executed his plan to bring down the Britannian Empire with his most trusted comrades.

More details about the film and new spin-offs

The plot of the original anime [VIDEO] series centered on Lelouch who sought revenge and started to lead a rebellion group against the Britannian Empire.
