In the same month, plot details, production images, and special cast members regarding Kamen Rider Saber: The Movie were revealed. In November, the film's official title was revealed to be Kamen Rider Saber: The Phoenix Swordsman and the Book of Ruin, promoted alongside Zero-One's film in the marketing campaign titled Kamen Rider Splendid Double-Feature (仮面ライダー 超豪華2本立て Kamen Raidā Chōgōkai ni-hondate).
Ticket pre-sales began on November 8, 2020, with online purchases including digital downloads of episodes of both Zero-One's anime and Saber's anime. Both films premiered side-to-side in Japanese theaters on December 18, 2020.

- This is the first Winter Film to not serve as a crossover with the previous season, but rather a double-billed film releasing alongside the aforementioned season's theatrical movie.
- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Zero-One's summer movie was pushed to December as a result, as well being double-billed with Saber's winter movie instead, with Kiramager's Summer Film being pushed to February 2021. This leaves a potential crossover between Saber and Zero-One in an undetermined state.
- This is the first Kamen Rider theatrical movie to be labelled as a "short movie" (劇場短編 Gekijō-tanpen) rather than the standard movie prefix (劇場版 Gekijō-ban).
- A full length movie for Kamen Rider Saber was later revealed on March 2021.
- This Movie feature the cameo appearances of Master Logos and Sword of Logos Southern Branch.
