Mirai, the latest heartstring-tugging and charmingly bizarre film from acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) and Studio Chizu, will soon be whisking U.S. theatergoers along with two time-traveling siblings, when GKIDS releases the pic in select theaters starting November 30. As previously announced, Fathom Events will present special screenings on Nov. 29, Dec. 5 and Dec. 8.
Synopsis: When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning “future”), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun’s entire family. As his mother returns to work, and his father struggles to run the household, Kun becomes increasingly jealous of baby Mirai… until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future — including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and teenage Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story. But why did Mirai come from the future?
