Internationally acclaimed director Makoto Shinkai's new film will open in Japan on July 19
The official website for Makoto Shinkai's new anime feature film Tenki no Ko/Weathering With You has posted a two-minute second trailer introducing its new theme song "Grand Escape (Movie edit) feat. Touko Miura." As reported, Miura was chosen in the audition to find the female singer for the film's theme song that lasted a year, and spent two months for the recording under the direction of RADWIMPS' leader Yojiro Noda. In the end of the clip, another theme song, "Ai ni Dekiru koto wa Mada Arukai" by RADWIMPS, is also introduced.
Following the "Sora (Sky)" version poster introduced last December, a "Hare (Sunny)" version poster visual was posted on the film's official Twitter.
In addition to 18-year-old Kotaro Daigo as the male protagonist Hodaka Morishima and 17-year-old Nana Mori as the main heroine Hina Amano, six more voice cast members have been announced:
- Keisuke Suga: Shun Oruri (Gintoki Sakata in the Gintama live-action films)
- Natsumi: Tsubasa Honda (Winry Rockbell in the Fullmetal Alchemist live-action film)
- Tomi: Chieko Baisho (Sophie in Howl's Moving Castle)
- Nagi Amano: Sakura Kiryu (Peter Pan musical)
- Yasui: Sei Hiraizumi (Acting prime minister Yusuke Satomi in Shin Godzilla)
- Takai: Yuki Kaji (Eren Yeager in Attack on Titan)
