Makoto Shinkai’s latest animated film, Your Name., is receiving a limited theatrical release in the United States and Canada beginning on April 07, 2017, thanks to Funimation Films. The film will be presented both in the original Japanese language with English subtitles and also dubbed in English.
Funimation describes Your Name. as follows:
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, it dawns on them. They want something more from this connection—a chance to meet, an opportunity to truly know each other. Tugging at the string of fate, they try to find a way to each other. But distance isn’t the only thing keeping them apart. Is their bond strong enough to face the cruel irony of time? Or is their meeting nothing more than a wish upon the stars?
More information, such as theaters and showtimes, will be presented at a later date at the official Funimation Films Your Name. home page, which is available here.
