Mamoru Hosoda's film ships on DVD/BD on November 26

North American distributor Funimation began streaming a third English dub clip for Mamoru Hosoda's Wolf Children film on Tuesday, along with its English-subtitled counterpart.



Wolf Children's story covers 13 years and begins with a 19-year-old college student named Hana (Colleen Clinkenbeard) 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 (Jad Saxton) who was born on a snowy day, and a younger brother named Ame (Micah Solusod) 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.

The Tugg platform is selling tickets for showings of the film in various locations across the United States. Each location needs to sell a certain number of tickets to guarantee the film will screen there.

The film won the Animation of the Year award at this year's Tokyo Anime Awards, won the animation category in the 26th Annual Japan Academy Prizes in March, and won the Animation Film Award at the 67th Annual Mainichi Film Awards in February. Additionally, the film won an Audience Award at this year's New York International Children's Film Festival.

The film ran with an English dub at the Laemmle Town Center 5 theater in Los Angeles from September 27 to October 3. Funimation will release the film on Blu-ray and DVD on November 26.
