TOHO released a new trailer for Suzume, the upcoming film from Your Name and Weathering With You director Makoto Shinkai.
Led by Nanoka Hara as Suzume Iwato and Hokuto Matsumura as Souta Munakata, Suzume will also feature Eri Fukatsu as Suzume’s aunt, and Kabuki actor Hakuo Matsumoto as Souta’s grandfather.
“In spite of my lack of experience, Director Shinkai and the rest of the crew poured everything into this project, which will be reflected in the emotion delivered straight into the hearts of audiences around the world,” Fukatsu said.
Hakuo added, “It was my first time playing a character in an anime film, and Director Shinkai did a wonderful job of guiding me through to the best performances. He was very friendly and kept a positive mood during production, for which I am very grateful.”
Check out the latest Suzume trailer below:
“17-year-old Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu when she encounters a young man who tells her, ‘I’m looking for a door,’” reads Suzume‘s synopsis. “What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly drawn by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob. Doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.”
