Funimation Announces Theatrical Release for Your Name
Funimation Films has officially released the trailer and opened advanced ticketing for the North American theatrical release of the critically acclaimed, and Japan’s highest-grossing film of 2016, Your Name.
The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint.
When a dazzling comet lights up the night’s sky, it dawns on them. They want something more from this connection—a chance to meet, an opportunity to truly know each other. Tugging at the string of fate, they try to find a way to each other. But distance isn’t the only thing keeping them apart. Is their bond strong enough to face the cruel irony of time? Or is their meeting nothing more than a wish upon the stars?
Your Name also features an all-new English-language soundtrack created by award-winning Japanese band RADWIMPS, the masterminds behind the original Japanese film soundtrack and score. The trailer, which features the new English RADWIMPS soundtrack, can be found AT Funimation’s YouTube channel.
North American audiences will be able to experience Your Name in starting April 7, 2017. Tickets are now open for pre-sale on the film’s official website.
