Makoto Shinkai's Suzume no Tojimari Shares New Trailer

Makoto Shinkai's next major feature film is currently in the works for a release in Japan later this year, and fans have been given a new look at what to expect from Suzume no Tojimari with a stunning new trailer! It's going to be the first new movie from the famed creator and his team in three years, and fans are definitely curious to see how it works out thanks to previous successes with films such as Your Name and Weathering With You. But with the new movie releasing overseas later this year (and next year internationally), there are still many questions about what we'll actually be seeing go down.

While the first teaser trailer for Suzume no Tojimari gave fans hints of the new lead character, the titular Suzume, and her mysterious powers, the newest trailer (complete with English subtitles) gives us our first full look at not only the mysterious story for the film, but its story as well as a mysterious character seems to be sparking this dark and magical journey for the new movie. It's the first audio of the lead heroine's actress too, Nanoka Hara, so you can check it all out in full for yourself below: 

Suzume no Tojimari will be releasing in theaters across Japan on November 11th, and Crunchyroll and Sony Pictures Entertainment have licensed the film for an international release early next year. Makoto Shinkai is credited with the direction, story, and screenplay for Toho and CoMix Wave Films. Masayoshi Tanaka is providing character design, Kenichi Tsuchiya serves as animation director, and Takumi Tanji will be art director. The film is officially described as such:

"On the other side of the door, was time in its entirety—17-year-old Suzume's journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu when she encounters a young man who tells her, "I'm looking for a door." What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly mesmerized by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob…Doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.

The stars
The sunset
The morning sky

Within that realm, it was as though all time had melted together in the sky—

Drawn in by this mysterious door, Suzume's journey is about to begin."
