The January issue (on sale on December 10) of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine will confirm that Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time or "TokiKake," Digimon Adventure) will direct the Summer Wars film for release in Japan in next summer. The "action entertainment" story will revolve around a modern-day family that embarks on a midsummer adventure together at the behest of a 90-year-old woman. The animation studio Madhouse had already revealed at the Tokyo International Anime Fair 2008 in March that it is working on the newest film by Hosoda.

Satoko Okudera (Angel, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Miyori no Mori) is writing the screenplay, while Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Evangelion, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, FLCL) is designing the characters. Youji Takeshige (Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle) will be oversee the art direction.


Old post is old -_-

Anywho, the plot so far of the movie is about a family the protect their world (Earth, of course) from another world called Oz.

First trailer released.

Never heard of "The Girl Who Leaped Through Time" so I'll try to find a way to watch it. As for "Summer Wars"....I don't see where "Wars" comes from.
