The Glasgow-based label Anime Limited has announced that it will release Hiroyuki Okiura and Production I.G's A Letter to Momo anime film in UK cinemas in Winter 2013. Andrew Partridge of Anime Limited comments:
'I've had my eyes on Momo ever since it screened at Scotland Loves Anime in 2011 - we're very excited to have this in our catalog and will be organising a limited theatrical run as soon as the dub is completed in the USA!”'
A Letter to Momo follows a girl named Momo who struggles with her father's sudden passing and her move to the countryside. Momo finds otherworldly creatures at her new home. Okiura spent seven years planning, writing, storyboarding, and directing the film; it was his first return to directing since Jin-Roh in 2000.
