After the success of The Boy and the Beast, critically-acclaimed anime director, Mamoru Hosoda, returns with a new project. Titled Mirai no Mirai, the new film will take on the theme about siblings. Now, we finally get a better look at the film, as the staff have revealed a new trailer. The staff also unveiled a new poster visual for the film as well.
The new trailer and visual reveal that this new sibling film will premiere next year, on 20th July. Here’s how Variety describes the anime’s story:
Mirai follows a 4-year old boy who is struggling to cope with the arrival of a little sister in the family, until things turn magical. A mysterious garden in the backyard of the boy’s home becomes a gateway allowing the child to travel back in time and encounter his mother as a little girl and his great-grandfather as a young man. These fantasy-filled adventures allow the child to change his perspective and help him become the big brother he was meant to be.
Studio Chizu will be animating the new film, and of course, Mamoru Hosoda is directing it. Hosoda also wrote the screenplay for the film as well. Hosoda’s previous works, Wolf Children and The Boy and the Beast, centered on motherhood and fatherhood respectively. This time, his latest work will center on the relationship between siblings.
