The next movie from acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (The Boy and the Beast,Summer Wars) is Mirai of the Future, which is coming to Japan on July 20 with an international release to follow. In the meantime, TOHO shared a new trailer featuring more footage along with a sample of Tatsuro Yamashita’s “Mirai no Theme” opening song.
GKIDS will be bringing the film to the U.S. as Mirai. Here’s how they describe it:
One day, Kun’s mother brings home a new family member. For the four-year-old boy, joy quickly turns to disappointment when the little sister replaces her brother as the center of attention. The boy can’t bring himself to accept her as his sister. But things turn magical when, with a mysterious garden as his gateway, the boy encounters his mother as a little girl and his great-grandfather as a young man, and has a series of surprising adventures with his “older” sister from the future. These experiences change how he sees the world and help him grow into the big brother he was meant to be.
