The English cast includes:

GKIDS will begin screening the film in English and in Japanese with English subtitles in the U.S. on January 14. The film will screen in English and in Japanese with English subtitles. There will be IMAX previews in select theaters beginning on January 12. GKIDS screened the film at the Anime NYC 2021 event in November.

BELLE opened in Japan on July 16. The film had IMAX screenings in 38 theaters throughout Japan. This makes BELLE the first of Hosoda's films to have IMAX screenings.

The film has earned a cumulative total of 6,397,159,950 yen (about US$56.44 million) as of October 10. The film is Hosoda's highest-grossing film. MX4D screenings for the film opened on October 22.

France's Cannes Film Festival first screened the film in the festival's Cannes Premiere section on July 15. It marked the first Official Selection at the festival for Hosoda.

The film had its North American premiere at New York Film Festival on September 25.

Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, The Boy and The Beast, Mirai) directed and scripted the film, and is also credited for the original work. The film marks Studio Chizu's 10th anniversary. Taisei Iwasaki (Blood Blockade Battlefront, Dragon Pilot: Hisone and Masotan, The Naked Director) is the film's music director and composer.
