Makoto Shinkai’s latest film Suzume no Tojimari is coming this fall

Makoto Shinkai

Makoto Shinkai’s latest film Suzume no Tojimari is expected to hit Japanese theaters on November 11th.

Makoto Shinkai is a director, animator, and author largely known for his works Your Name, 5 Centimeters per Second, and Weathering With You among others. His films have largely been released in English by anime licensor GKIDS.

You can read a summary of the film from MyAnimeList below.

Suzume, a 17-year-old girl who lives in a quiet town in Kyushu, encounters a traveling young man who tells her “I’m looking for a door.” She follows after him and discovers a weathered door in the ruins in the mountains, as if it were the only thing left standing from a collapse. As if drawn by something, Suzume reaches for the door…

Before long, doors begin to open one after another in various parts of Japan. As disasters come from the far side of the doors, the open doors must be closed.

The stars, the setting sun, and the morning sky—in that place she wandered into, there was a sky that seemingly blended all of time together. Guided by the mysterious doors, Suzume’s “door-locking journey” begins.

At the time of publishing, an English release has yet to be announced.
