Studio Colorido has a new anime film in the works, and its title is Penguin Highway. The film itself will have a very special soundtrack, as the one and only Utada Hikaru performs its theme song, “Good Night”. And now, the anime film’s staff have revealed a new trailer for the film, which also previews that very song.
Based on a novel by Tomihiko Morimi, the film will make its premiere on 17th August 2018. Yuusuke Ishida is directing the film over at Studio Colorido.
It tells the story of 4th grader Aoyama-kun, a smart and observant little boy who writes down everything that he discovers in his notebooks. He gets on with a young lady he calls his “Onee-san”, who works at the dental clinic.
Aoyama-kun is shocked one day when he encounters a penguin in the middle of his suburban town. The sudden appearance of the penguins seems to be related with his “Onee-san”, so he tries to unravel the mystery behind the penguins.
As for the theme song “Good Night”, it pops into the trailer by the 28-second mark. Of course, Utada Hikaru herself is performing that song, which is also serving as her latest single. Meanwhile, her next album is slated for 27th June 2018, entitled “Hatsukoi”.
