GKIDS is presenting the highly-anticipated new film from director Makoto Shinkai and the creative team, including producer Genki Kawamura, behind the critically-acclaimed, global smash hit Your Name.
The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…
The film has already become the #1 local film at the Japanese box office for 2019, and was Japan’s official selection for the Best International Feature category at the Academy Awards, the first time the country submitted an animated feature for consideration since Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke.
GKIDS and NYAV Post produced the English-language dubbed version of Weathering with You, and it was directed by Michael Sinterniklaas and Stephanie Sheh – who previously directed and starred in the English-language version of Your Name.
