Makoto Shinkai‘s Your Name is the highest-grossing Japanese film of all-time, and it’s finally coming to the U.S. courtesy of FUNimation Films. The distributor has released two trailers for the film, one in the original Japanese with subtitles and one dubbed in English.
Your Name begins its theatrical run in the U.S. on April 7th.
The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint.
When a dazzling comet lights up the night’s sky, something shifts, and they seek each other out wanting something more—a chance to finally meet. But try as they might, something more daunting than distance prevents them. Is the string of fate between Mitsuha and Taki strong enough to bring them together, or will forces outside their control leave them forever separated?
