Mamoru Hosoda's latest film to receive limited theatrical release from Funimation

FUNimation Entertainment began streaming a second English-subtitled trailer on Tuesday for Mamoru Hosoda's film Wolf Children. The trailer is the same as one of the Japanese trailers streamed last year before the release of the film.

Wolf Children is the newest film directed by Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars). The film's story covers 13 years and begins with a 19-year-old college student named Hana who encounters and falls in "fairy tale-like" love with a "wolf man." After marrying the wolf man, Hana gives birth and raises two wolf> children — an older sister named Yuki ("snow") who was born on a snowy day, and a younger brother named Ame ("rain") who was born on a rainy day. When the wolf man suddenly dies, Hana decides to move to a rural town far removed from the city.

Funimation will release the film this year in select theaters and on home video. The film originally opened in Japan last July.

Upcoming events that will screen the film with subtitles are:

  • Anime Expo, Los Angeles, CA: July 4
  • Anime Overload, Austin, TX: July 6

  • St. Louis International Children's Film Festival, St Charles, MO: July 27
