The staff of Wolf Children (Ōkami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki), the latest film from director Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars) announced on Monday that the film has been licensed for distribution in 34 countries and regions. Those areas currently include Korea, Taiwan, France, and Spain, although the rights for North America and the United Kingdom are still under negotiations.
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.
