I love Hosoda's films, they're wonderful stories with heartwarming characters. I await his new work for the new year, as much as i want it now, the wait will be worth it, as it always is with his films.

If the sheer amount of furry fanart invading pixiv is any indicator, it could very well be it still....

Entertainment news source Variety reported on Friday that FUNimation Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to Mamoru Hosoda's upcoming film The Boy and The Beast. The film will open in select theaters later this year and nationwide in early 2016.


Ah, Funimation licensed this. Good news. I expect BDs to come a bit early then and if by some chance it shows in a theater near me, I'll probably go see it.

I pray this will be part of London Film Festival this year (When Wolf Children came out, it was part of the festival). I love Hosada Movies and can't wait to watch a new one
