It’s almost time to tkae a most unforgettable journey through Makoto Shinkai’s world.
Earlier today, Funimation Films opened ticket sales for Your Name.‘s (Kimi no na Wa.) theatrical run. The site features a theater locator, which allows fans to find a nearby location. New locations will be added in the near future.
Funimation also started streaming an English dub trailer for the film, which you can check out below. The teaser features Zenzenzense‘s English adaptation as a background track.
British distributor Anime Limited streamed the teaser, albeit without the English song.
Your Name. will hit North American theaters on April 7. Funimation will host subtitled and dubbed screenings of the film. RADWIMPS will create new English versions of their songs in the film, including Zen Zen Zense, Sparkle, Yume Toro, and Nandemo Ii ya. The group composed over 22 tracks for the film’s original run.
Your Name. is an original film from Makoto Shinkai (5 Centimeters per Second, Children Who Chase Lost Voices),who directed the feature at CoMix Wave Films. Shinkai also penned the script, while Masayoshi Tanaka (anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day, High School of the Dead) provided character designs. Masashi Ando (Spirited Away, Paprika) served as animation director on the project.
The film made its global theatrical début on July 3, at Anime Expo. Funimation announced that they licensed the movie at the convention. The feature also saw an Oscar qualifying theatrical run in late 2017. Ultimately, though, the film wasn’t selected as a nominee.
In January, Box Office Mojo reported that Your Name. passed Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away in global revenues, making it the highest-grossing anime film to date.
Funimation describes the film as:
The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint.
When a dazzling comet lights up the night’s sky, it dawns on them. They want something more from this connection—a chance to meet, an opportunity to truly know each other. Tugging at the string of fate, they try to find a way to each other. But distance isn’t the only thing keeping them apart. Is their bond strong enough to face the cruel irony of time? Or is their meeting nothing more than a wish upon the stars?
