Ōkami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki, the latest film from Mamoru Hosada (Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time), is slated to open in theaters throughout Japan on July 21. A preview clip for the film will also debut in Japanese theaters on Saturday.
The 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.
