Director Kojima reunites with Monster TV staff; Naoki Urasawa designs characters

The Japanese movie website Cinema Today began streaming the 108-second trailer for the anime movie Tibetan Dog on Friday. The trailer features the theme song "Echoes" by female Tibetan-Chinese singer Alan Dawa Dolma.

Directed by Masayuki Kojima (Monster, Piano Forest) at the anime studio Madhouse, this joint Japanese/Chinese production is a coming-of-age story about a young, city boy (voiced by Tatsuomi Hamada) who suddenly must live in Tibet. The film highlights the natural beauty of Tibet and the boy's interaction with a large, golden-haired Tibetan dog.

Shigeru Fujita (Monster) adapted the original character designs, created by Monster and 20th Century Boys manga creator Naoki Urasawa, for animation. The film will open in Japan on January 7, 2012.
