GKIDS and Shout! Factory will release Makoto Shinkai’s new animated film “Weathering With You” in 4K Ultra HD, part of an exclusive 4-disc set on November 17. The traditional Blu-ray version will be available from Shout! on September 15.
The box-set will also include the feature-length documentary "The Making Of Weathering With You," as well as the film’s soundtrack on CD, a 104-page perfect-bound book, a mini-poster, and decal sticker, all in a beautiful hard case designed for collectors.
The story centers around Hodaka, during the summer of his high school freshman year, as he runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…
Japan’s Official Submission for Best International Feature at the 92nd Academy Awards, and a Toronto International Film Festival Official Selection, this magical tale’s awe-inspiring beauty thrilled audiences when the film hit North American theaters in early 2020.
