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

Funimation posted a subtitled trailer to its official YouTube channel on Monday for Mamoru Hosoda's film Wolf Children. The New York Children's International Film Festival will screen the film this month and will also host director Mamoru Hosoda for a Q&A session on March 9.

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