First Teaser Trailer For The Anime Film WEATHERING WITH YOU From The Director of YOUR NAME
Director Makoto Shinkai's anime film Your Name was a wonderful film that was a crazy huge success as it broke all kinds of box-office records in Japan. Your Name was actually the most successful anime feature film of all time.
As a fan of Your Name, I’ve been looking forward to see what Shinkai’s next film, Weathering With You, will entail and thanks to a recently released teaser trailer we have our first look at it and it looks like another beautifully animated movie.
Weathering With You follows a high school student named Hodaka “who leaves his island home and moves to Tokyo. He's immediately broke from the move and lives his life in isolation, but soon finds a job writing for a strange occult magazine. The weather's been terrible, with rain every day since he had got this new job, until he meets a young woman named Hina. Hodaka finds that although Hina lives with her brother through outside circumstances, the two are happy. Also strangely enough, Hina has the power to control the weather.”
It was also announced that Your Name character designer Masayoshi Tanaka has returned to work on this new film and they will also be joined by Atsushi Tamura, who will serve as animation director, and Hiroshi Takiguchi, who will serve as art director.
Weathering With You is set to open in Japan on July 19th, 2019, and it will eventually make its way to the US.
