FUNimation has released a new trailer for Wolf Children with English subtitles. This is the second English trailer we’ve seen for the movie, the first was streamed just a few months ago. Wolf Children (otherwise known as Wolf Children Ame and Yuki) was first released in Japan in July of last year. It’s finally making it’s way westward with limited screenings, including a few that were just announced recently. The film has won a heap of awards since it’s initial release, which isn’t surprising consider it was directed by Mamorua Hosoda. Hosoda is well known for his other critically acclaimed work including The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006) and Summer Wars (2009).
Wolf Children tells the story of Hana, a promising college student who falls in love with a “Wolfman”, the last surviving decedent of the Japanese wolf. After giving birth to two (adorable) wolf children, Ame and Yuki, Hana gives up the life she had and moves to the country to raise her two children. Naturally, Hana and her family must face some unique challenges, and Ame and Yuki must grow up torn between two different worlds. All this makes for a heartwarming story, including some beautiful music and stunning animation to go with.
The latest trailer gives us some more insight to the plot than the first one, so be sure to check it out! And if this has piqued your interests, check and see if there are any Wolf Children screenings near you!
