Advance tickets are on sale NOW for Mamoru Hosoda’s The Boy and the Beast, in theaters across the nation beginning March 4! Find a theater near you now and buy your tickets today at funimationfilms.com/theboyandthebeast. Lots of anime theatrical screenings sell out in advance, so don’t get caught at the theater ticketless—we strongly suggest buying your ticket as soon as possible.

 

 

Plus, check out the debut of the long-awaited English dub trailer (plus the original Japanese trailer, subbed into English)!

 

 

If you’ve loved Hosoda’s other films, you definitely need to experience The Boy and the Beast, which Twitch Film calls “as charming as The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, as exhilarating as Summer Wars and as touching as Wolf Children”.

If you aren’t familiar with Hosoda’s works yet, you’re in for a real treat. “Mamoru Hosoda ranks first among the Japanese animation directors seen as successors to now-retired industry giant Hayao Miyazaki — and for good reason” according to the Japan Times, so watch his latest movie in theaters to see anime history being made.

Plus, like Hosoda’s other films, The Boy and the Beast is highly accessible and great for families—the perfect gateway movie for your parents or friends who might not know much about anime.

 

 

The theatrical run is available in both English dub AND Japanese audio with English subtitles; check your local theater for the specific language showings. If you want to see more theatrical screenings with dual language and multiple showings, buy your tickets early to show your support for this format! Tickets are available at some locations– additional ticket sales will be added soon.

The Boy and the Beast Synopsis:
The latest feature film from award-winning Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children): When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.
