weathering with you teaser trailer Your Name

Makoto Shinkai and Genki Kawamura, the writer-director and producer duo behind 2016 anime sensation Your Name, have just dropped the first US teaser trailer for their follow-up feature, Weathering With You. Watch above.

Coming in at just over a minute long, the trailer gives a little taster of the narrative to come — a love story between an isolated village boy who runs to Tokyo in the hope of starting a new life with a girl whose magical abilities can clear gloomy, rainy skies.

Weathering With You is Japan’s official entry for the Best International Feature Film section in the 2020 Oscars. It’s slated to land in the US next year and who knows, maybe Uniqlo will re-release its collaborative Makoto Shinkai collection to celebrate.
