    Nah, the movie only re-tell the story of season 1, plus some minor extended scene. Season 2 pickup right after the season 1 ended.

    i was so disappointed when I watched the movie n realized that it was just a recap. waste of my time. and to think that there is so much good Overlord standalone material they could have used. don't bother yourself with the movie

    If you watched season 1 then no as others have said it's mostly recap.

    It's a recap of Overlord season 1 with about 3 minutes bonus content spread throughout the movie.
