Hosoda's 'Mirai Of The Future' Coming to The US, The UK and More

Mamoru Hosoda's next hotly anticipated film Mirai Of The Future will open in Japan this July. We now know that the film will also be screening in cinemas in the US and the UK, among other countries.

GKIDS Films will release the film in the United States, while Anime Limited will bring the film to screens in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Anime Limited announced that their release will take place in the fourth quarter of 2018- if we had to guess we'd anticipate it would be after Scotland Loves Anime and London Film Festival. GKIDS have announced their release will be in "Fall 2018".

Mirai centers on a spoiled four-year-old boy who is resentful of his new baby sister. However, mysterious circumstances lead to him encountering the older version of her, from the future. It promises to combine the time travel theme of Hosoda's The Girl Who Leapt Through Time with the family themes of Summer Wars and Wolf Children.

"Mamoru Hosoda is one of the most talented and accessible directors in the anime industry, and Mirai looks set to be another wonderful addition to his hugely impressive body of work." Says Anime Limited President, Andrew Partridge." We’re incredibly excited to be able to bring the joy and beauty of this director’s latest film to a broad audience around the UK in 2018″.

"GKIDS is both thrilled and honored to be releasing the newest film from the great Mamoru Hosoda, a true master and one of the most exciting, iconic and humanist filmmakers working in animation," said  GKIDS CEO , Eric Beckman.

The film will also be released in Canada via MK2 Mile End and Australia and New Zealand via Madman Entertainment.
