Wolf Children Trailer 2
Written and directed by Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars), Wolf Children (おおかみこどもの雨と雪) tells the story of a woman named Hana (Aoi Miyazaki) who falls in love with a “wolf-man” and has a family with him. Their children, Ame (Rain, 雨) and Yuki (Snow, 雪), inherit both human and wolf characteristics, and later move out to the countryside with their mother when their father passes away.
The plot doesn’t sound like much, huh? But I’m pretty sure the movie is going to floor me when I’m done watching it, after all Aoi Miyazaki rarely disappoints — and if I’m not moved, I’m going to be closed to it.
Even if there’s no amazing plot, there’s still going to be amazing animation.
Wolf Children will be released on July 21st in Japan.
