Trailer for the New Modern Fairy Tale by the Director of "Summer Wars" and "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time"
The team of director Mamoru Hosoda, script writer Satoko Okudera and character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars), return to Japanese theaters this summer with their original, modern fairytale: Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki (The Wolf Children Rain and Snow).
While there are scores of TV series made, especially if you take annualized franchises like One Piece out of the equation, there are never that many anime movies produced. Given Hosoda's track record of producing narratively coherent and interesting, visually astonishing works, this should be a fantastic animated feature, worth looking forward to.
Check out it's newly rolled out first trailer...

Kinda like the wolf kids from FABLES... and as malkovich said, some Totoro vibes... There's probably more to it than what we're seeing here though... And someone should remind Sadamoto to finish his damn Evangelion manga... seriously...

at a free screening in 35mm at the American Cinematheque about 6 years ago. I was absolutely floored by it, as well as SUMMER WARS.

I'd like to hear an explanation of the physics of those cables slowing somebody down enough so as not to splatter themselves in the street.
