Japanese animation studios CoMix Wave Films, STORY Inc and Toho Co., Ltd have finally announced a release date for the acclaimed director’s next work, makoto shinkai. In 2016, the filmmaker became world famous thanks to the touching fantasy romance between Mitusha and Taki, Your name. The Japanese animated film that sees the temporary fight for the love of its characters, was one of the most acclaimed productions of the year. The film won a total of 16 awards and 26 nominations, including the Annie Awards (despite its omission at the Oscars), and has accumulated over $500 million at the worldwide box office.
Due to the phenomenon of Your nameas well as the popularity of the other film that Shinkai released in 2019, growing old with youThe filmmaker’s new film has quickly become one of the most anticipated releases of 2022 after its trailer revolutionized the networks.
For now, we only have a first sneak peek that was released in Japan from Suzume no Tojimari (which means Suzume closing the doors). Although the trailer doesn’t feature any dialogue, its animation and soundtrack hint at a (typical Shinkai) dream movie that fans have been waiting for.
Although the trailer doesn’t reveal much, the official synopsis for the film anticipates an animated adventure starring a 17-year-old girl living a happy life in the sleepy town of Khusu. At one point, the young woman meets a boy who claims to be looking for a door. Suzume follows him and discovers a worn gate in the middle of the mountains, which will take her to embark on an adventure full of Japanese doors and the journey of how to close them.
Director, makoto shinkaiHe has also talked about what this story means to him and how he hopes fans will react to it: “We must think about how to close the many doors that we leave open. He earned that responsibility from Suzume while traveling around Japan by closing various doors.. I sincerely hope that this movie left the audience with a big smile and excitement when they left the theater.”
We know that Shinkai’s long-awaited adventure will hit theaters in Japan on November 11, 2022, although it is not yet clear when it will do so internationally. Taking into account that growing old with you premiered in theaters in Japan in July 2019, and later in the rest of the world at the end of that year, we can assume that the film will hit theaters around the world in early 2023.
Waiting for its premiere, we can enjoy the other two films from makoto shinkai, Your name Y growing old with youfrom Max HBO in Latin America and Spain.
