Madman Releases Subtitled 'The Boy And The Beast" Trailer.
To mark the occasion, they have now also released the first official subtitled trailer for the film. Fans of Hosoda's previous work will recognise the beautiful animation style on display here. Hosoda's visual flair and heartfelt stories have won him comparisons with Hayao Miyazaki Based on the strength of this trailer, The Boy and The Beast isn't going to change that.
The film is devised and written by Hosoda himself. It looks like it will be closest in feel to his previous film Wolf Children, with similar connections to Japanese folklore and mythology. Check out the trailer below.
The Boy and The Beast opens in Japan July 11th, and The Australian release date is TBC. No US or UK release have been announced just yet, but Funimation and Manga Entertainment have released Hosoda's previous movies.
