New Trailer + Poster for GKids' US Release of Ghibli's 'Only Yesterday'
"You can't be serious!" Good news, Ghibli fans! GKids has already re-released the 1991 animated film Only Yesterday at the IFC Center theater in New York City, and should be expanding it to more theaters later in February. The new re-release version of this film features the voice of Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridey, as well as Dev Patel, meaning it has been redubbed in English if you catch it in theaters in 2016. The animated film is about a 27-year-old girl who travels to the countryside while reminiscing about her childhood growing up in Tokyo. It's one of the most beloved Ghibli films. Go see it in theaters if you can.
Here's the new official US trailer + poster for Isao Takahata's Only Yesterday, direct via GKids' YouTube:
Only Yesterday is written & directed by Isao Takahata and was the fifth feature film made by Studio Ghibli after they formed. For those who are hoping this expands beyond New York City, Indiewire says it will expand to theaters nationwide starting February 26th early next year. This makes me wish that GKids would go back and re-release all of the Studio Ghibli films from the archive, but preferably with the original Japanese cast and score, and throw them back up on the big screen every year. The more of these films we can get out here, the better. Every last one of them is wonderful. Who is planning to go see Only Yesterday?
