What is the Sword Art Online Progressive Sequel about?
These films are based on the novel series of the same name by Reki Kawahara. These novels are a retelling of the Aincard Castle arc from the original Sword Art Online story. So the first film, Aria of Starless Nights, covered the first volume, which is the meeting of Asuna and Kirito will the first floor of the castle.

As for the sequel, we expect that it will cover the next volume of the novels. So that would be Asuna and Kirito scaling floors 2 and 3 of the massive castle. Although this is speculation and the film could decide to cover more than 1 volume as well.
