Anime fans rejoice! Suzume is finally headed our way very, very soon!
The highly-anticipated follow-up to director Makoto Shinkai's recent, critically-acclaimed works like Your Name (2016) and Weathering With You (2019) is set to make its U.S. debut this April, and in anticipation, the full trailer for the English dub of the film has finally been released!
Lead by Nichole Sakura, who voices the film's titular character and who audiences will recognize from other beloved titles like CBS' GhostsGhosts, NBC's Superstore, and Disney+'s Star Wars: Visions, the English dub cast includes talent like Josh Keaton as Souta; Jennifer Sun Bell as Tamaki; Joe Zieja as Serizawa; Rosalie Chang as Chika; Amanda C. Miller as Rumi; Mela Lee as Miki; and Cam Clarke as Munakata.
"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,'" the film's official description reads. "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 synopsis continues:
"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."
