We have new information on Makoto Shinkai’s next anime film!
Last Saturday, Shinkai revealed a new visual for his first new anime film in three years, Suzume no Tojimari (literally, Suzume’s Door-Locking). The beautiful visual depicts the titular heroine, Suzume, and one of the strange doors that she encounters during her journey.
You can check out the visual and a synopsis of the film below:
“On the other side of the door, was time in its entirety—
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.” 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 mesmerized 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.
The morning sky
Within that realm, it was as though all time had melted together in the sky—
Drawn in by this mysterious door, Suzume’s journey is about to begin.”
Furthermore, Shinkai also revealed that the film will be coming out this year on 11 November. It looks like we won’t have to wait long to finally catch it in theatres!
