Shinkai’s Suzume no Tojimari Will Be Released By Crunchyroll

Get Excited! TOHO is bringing us another breathtaking film called Suzume no Tojimari (title may change). Check out the trailer that was released last month. Crunchyroll, Sony Pictures, and Wild Bunch International are coming together to bring us Suzume no Tojimari and will be released in Japan on November 11. Unfortunately, the rest of us will have to wait until early 2023. Crunchyroll will be the sole distributor in North America.

From THE Makoto Shinkai (Your Name– 2016 and Weathering With You– 2019), this film may be a continuation of those movies. It feels like it, but I don’t want to jump to conclusions. Also, is Radwimps creating the music for this new movie? I couldn’t find confirmation, but it would be amazing if they are. Radwimps did an incredible job on Your Name and Weathering With You.

The Movie’s Lengthy Synopsis

On the other side of the door, was time in its entirety—

“Suzume no Tojimari” is a coming-of-age story for the 17-year-old protagonist, Suzume, set in various disaster-stricken locations across Japan, where she must close the doors causing devastation.

Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu (located in southwestern Japan) when she encounters a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door.” What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly drawn by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob… Doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.

—The stars, then sunset, and the morning sky.

Within that realm, it was as though all time had melted together in the sky…

Never-before-seen scenery, encounters and farewells… A myriad of challenges await her on her journey. Despite all the obstacles in her way, Suzume’s adventure shines a ray of hope upon our own struggles against the toughest roads of anxiety and constraints that make up everyday life. This story of closing doors that connect our past to the present and future will leave a lasting impression upon all of our hearts.

Drawn in by these mysterious doors, Suzume’s journey is about to begin.

That’s quite the synopsis, but I’m not complaining. It’s going to be hard to wait until 2023.
