Suzume no Tojimari is the next movie by Makoto Shinkai, a world-renowned anime director. The film was originally announced in late 2021, and its first trailer was shared back in April.
The upcoming movie follows Suzume, a 17-year-old girl living in a town in Kyushu.
She soon meets a young man who is looking for a mysterious door that they find at an abandoned house in the mountains. But as soon as Suzume reached out to the door, she gets pulled in.
In the aftermath of this encounter, mysterious doors begin appearing all over Japan, followed by a wave of disasters.
Because of this, Suzume must journey across Japan to lock the doors and prevent further destruction.
Anime fans are probably already familiar with Makoto Shinkai, but for those who aren’t, he is currently one of the most popular anime directors in Japan and internationally.
Shinkai gained renown for his film, 5 Centimeters per Second. Though he became a household name after the release of the smash hit Your Name which became one of Japan’s top-earning movies of all time.
This was followed by Weathering With You in 2019 which proved to be another big hit both critically and commercially.
Because of this, there’s a lot of hype for his upcoming film, Suzume no Tojimari.
