Suzume No Tojimari Is Director Makoto Shinkai’s Third Movie
However, this is just the start of a chain reaction that opens several such doors all across Japan causing destruction and disasters. It is up to the protagonist to close them and mitigate the disaster. If one has watched the Netflix movie Bubble, it follows a similar premise. This is Makoto Shinkai’s third movie and the latest trailer lets viewers hear the characters’ voices for the very first time.
The movie’s official YouTube channel recently released this trailer. It opens with Suzume being asked about the mysterious door by a beautiful stranger, Souta. However, tension starts to rise after the duo meets a peculiar cat. What is so peculiar about this cat? Well, for one, it cat talk and secondly, it turns Souta into a talking, toddling wooden chair.
When Will Suzume No Tojimari Release Globally?
The very first trailer didn’t have any characters talking but only the hauntingly beautiful theme music, Suzume, which is sung by the melodious singer Toaka. Suzume No Tojimari is Shinkai’s first anime movie after a three-year hiatus. The anime movie is produced by CoMix Wave Films & distributed by Toho. Nanoka Hara, who voices the lead character Suzume was actually selected from an audition of more than 1700 people.

Shinkai’s The Garden Of Words Bags Best Animated Film Award
Shinkai has several amazing movies to his name that fared well among the anime fandom as well as the critics. Although his journey as a director started with the 2013 anime movie The Garden Of Words, he shot to fame with the 2016 anime Your Name. This movie received critical acclaim for its stunning visuals, animation, and emotional storytelling. Not just that, it won Best Animated Film at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards in 2016.
Ever since Shinkai’s journey has been all about achieving perfection with his anime movies. His 2019 movie Weathering With You, was also a massive success at the box office. It earned a whopping $15 Million in just a few days of screening. So, it is expected that Suzume No Tojimari will also share a similar spectacle furthering Shinkai’s fame in the anime industry.
