San-X character film gets teaser, poster, and release date
A new trailer for the Sumikko Gurashi movie takes the tiny corner-dwellers well outside their comfort zone.
The series, whose title translates to "Life in the Corner," is based on a line of San-X characters. The round little food- and animal-inspired toons like to hang out in cozy corners like café booths. In their upcoming film, subtitled The Unexpected Picture Book and the Secret Child, they'll be leaving their usual hangout as they're transported inside a picture book.
The movie will also introduce a new character not seen before in the line—a little gray baby bird. When we see it at the end of the trailer, the narrator asks, "Are you a Sumikko, too?"
Sumikko Gurashi the Movie: The Unexpected Picture Book and the Secret Child opens in Japan on November 8.
