New trailer for GKids’ animated feature Oscar contender ‘Mirai’

From Gkids and Fathom Events comes a new trailer for Mirai, the acclaimed animated feature from Studio Chizu and director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer WarsWolf Children).

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.

Mirai was an official selection at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight and in my top 5 Oscar predictions for Animated Feature.

In theaters November 30th with Special Fathom Events Screenings on November 29th, December 5th & 8th.

Here is the new trailer and poster.

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
