Mascots Live Fairy Tale Lives in Sumikko Gurashi Movie Trailer

Upcoming film based on San-X's corner-loving characters hits cinemas in Japan in November of 2019

San-X's Sumikko Gurashi mascot characters reenact The Little Mermaid in Sumikko Gurashi the Movie.


The cuteness and the fairy tail magic ramp up in a new trailer for Eiga Sumikko Gurashi: Tobidasu Eihon to Himitsu no Ko ("Sumikko Gurashi the Movie: The Pop-Up Book and The Mystery Child"), an upcoming theatrical anime film based on San-X's line of nervous, corner-loving creatures who don't like to stand out.



In Eiga Sumikko Gurashi: Tobidasu Eihon to Himitsu no Ko, the Sumikkos - a group of corner-dwelling creatures that don't like being the center of attention - are hanging out in the corner booth of their favorite cafe when all of a sudden they are sucked into a magical picture book. Inside, they meet a lost chick who may also be a Sumikko, and they decide to embark on an epic quest to help the chick find their home.
