Don’t worry, I’m sure the US and the UK will be able to see the new film from Mamoru Hosoda, best known for making The Girl Who Leaped Through Time and Summer Wars (which was ALMOST nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature the year Toy Story 3 won it - ALMOST!).
The staff of Wolf Children Ame and Yuki announced that the film had been licensed in 34 countries but as of right now, the US and the UK are still in negotiations to get it licensed. I’m sure it will very soon.
The film is about a 19 year old girl who falls in love and marries a “Wolf Man.” They have two children; Yuki “snow”, and her younger brother Ame “rain.” They are named after the weather in which it was when they were born. The “Wolf Man” dies suddenly and the family moves to a rural area far away from the city. Sounds like a good film to me!
The film will have a world premiere in France June 25 and then be officially released in Japan July 21.
I’m sure once licensing here in the US gets done, expect an American release soon after.
