Makoto Shinkai‘s next anime feature film, Weathering With You (Tenki no Ko), releases in Japanese cinemas later this month. With the release date being just two weeks away, a special preview for the upcoming movie has just been released.
The new preview is not just a regular old trailer though; it features a certain scene in the movie (no spoilers so don’t worry), as well as a more trailer-like highlight of the film’s cast of characters after.
Watch the preview for Weathering With You here:
The video starts off with a supercut of Makoto Shinkai’s other films, including the likes of ‘Your Name‘, ‘The Garden of Words‘, ‘Voices of a Distant Star‘, and more. After the intro comes the exclusive new scene. While there aren’t any English subtitles, it’s still definitely worth a look for Makoto Shinkai fans just because of how gorgeous both the animation is.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the film’s premise, Weathering With You is described as:
The summer of his high school freshman year, Hokoda runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hokoda meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strongwilled girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…
Weathering With You opens in Japan on July 19, 2019. The film will also be released in the Philippines sometime this year.
