Mamoru Hosoda’s ‘Mirai’ To Premiere At Cannes 2018

Mamoru Hosoda’s ‘Mirai’ To Premiere At Cannes 2018

Earlier this year, Anime Ltd. announced the exciting news that they will be distributing Mamoru Hosoda’s newest film, Mirai, in UK cinemas towards the end of the year.

Cannes Film Festival just yesterday revealed further exciting news on the film announcing it’s world premiere during their Director’s Fortnight in May. This will be the first time any Japanese animation has premiered the event, an incredible milestone and truly speaks volumes about the quality of the film.


The birth of a sibling is a joyous time for many, but not for Kun. Four years old and spoiled rotten, he sees baby sister Mirai as competition for his parents’ love. Amidst the luscious leaves of a mysterious garden, a magical encounter with his little sister from the future will send the siblings on an intimate journey through time and space, to confront the boy’s uncertain feelings and prepare him to be the big brother he needs to be.

Mirai is created, written and directed by Mamoru Hosoda (The Boy and the Beast, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars) and comes from his own production company Studio Chizu and will be released by Toho in Japan. The UK release is set for later in 2018 from Anime Ltd. and National Amusements.
