Studio Ghibli's 'Only Yesterday' Trailer and Screening List Revealed.[Updated]

Studio Ghibli and Isao Takahata's Only Yesterday finally comes to cinemas in North America early in 2016 (only 25 years late!). The film is arriving courtesy of the fine folks at GKIDS, complete with a shiny new Ghibli International produced dub starring woman-of-the-moment Daisy Ridley. It will screen at New York's IFC Center from January 1st and will then open wider from February 26th.  Takahata's acclaimed film follows a young woman named Taeko as she reminisces about her childhood in 1960's Japan.

With the release just around the corner, GKIDS have given us a sneaky peak at the new English language version courtesy of the first US trailer. Check it out (and the initial list of screenings) below!

SYNOPSIS: It’s 1982, and Taeko (Daisy Ridley) is 27 years old, unmarried, and has lived her whole life in Tokyo. She decides to visit her family in the countryside, and as the train travels through the night, memories flood back of her younger years: the first immature stirrings of romance, the onset of puberty, and the frustrations of math and boys. At the station she is met by young farmer Toshio (Dev Patel), and the encounters with him begin to reconnect her to forgotten longings. In lyrical switches between the present and the past, Taeko contemplates the arc of her life, and wonders if she has been true to the dreams of her childhood self.

Written and directed by Studio Ghibli co-founder and Academy Award® nominee Isao Takahata (The Tale of The Princess Kaguya), Only Yesterday is a masterpiece of time and tone, rich with humor and stirring emotion, from one of the world’s most revered animation studios. Critically acclaimed but never before released in North America, the film is receiving a national theatrical release in a new, Studio Ghibli-produced, English-language version in celebration of its 25th anniversary.
