As you can see above, the artwork shows Meliodas on the left, and the soldier looks a bit older here. After all, The Seven Deadly Sins: The Edinburgh Grudge takes place after the main series epilogue. At this point, Meliodas is an adult with his own wife and child. So, though his stature is small, Meliodas is stronger than ever here at his peak.
The two designs next to Meliodas should be easy to tell apart. The boy is none other than Tristan, the son of Meliodas and Elizabeth. The original anime first introduced this character with its finale as a briefly visited epilogue with the boy. Now, The Seven Deadly Sins: The Edinburgh Grudge will focus on Tristan as the lead. After all, the boy inherited his parents’ war powers, and this film will follow Tristan as he travels to Edinburgh Castle to exploit the gifts before they can harm others.
