'Maquia' Returning To US Cinemas With New English Dub Version

Mari Okada's directorial debut Maquia When The Promised Flower Blooms has screened to acclaim around the world. Following an international debut at Glasgow Film Festival, it went on to play the Fantasia festival Montreal, and was awarded Best Animated Film at Shanghai International Film Festival.

The film follows the relationship between Maquia, a member of a long-lived race call the lorph and her adopted human child, Ariel.

After an initial subtitled North American run in July, Eleven Arts Anime Studio have now announced that the film will return to US cinemas on September 21, this time with a brand new English dub.

The cast will include Xanthe Huynh, Eddy Lee and Cherami Leigh. A brand new trailer was released to showcase the dub.
