Mirai Trailer

"She's your sister. You have to protect her." GKids has unveiled a new official trailer for the animated film Mirai, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in Directors' Fortnight earlier this year. The latest film by master Japanese animation filmmaker Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, Wolf Children, The Boy and the Beast), the film is a delightful adventure following a young Japanese boy living with his parents. His life is disrupted by the arrival of a newborn baby girl, named Mirai, which his parents bring home one day. He soon after discovers a magical garden in his home which enables him to travel through time and meet his relatives from different eras. He's guided by his younger sister from the future. The voice cast includes Haru Kuroki, Moka Kamishiraishi, Gen Hoshino, Kôji Yakusho, Kumiko Asô, and Yoshiko Miyazaki. It's an adorable, whimsical, fun little animated film. Give it a whirl.

Ok, that might be watchable. But nothing to rush in...

Don't sleep on Hosoda. He is a master. His work, WOLF CHILDREN, is up there with the best of Ghibli.

Thanks David, although I know about that one (Wolf Children), I just didn't catch the time to see it. Will do at some times ... Cheers ...
