Although limited in specifics, Australian anime publisher Madman Entertainment confirmed they will be bringing Mamoru Hosoda’s latest feature film, The Boy and the Beast, to cinemas in Australia at some time in the future. This follows their DVD and Blu-ray releases of earlier Mamoru Hosoda works including Wolf Children, Summer Wars and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.
The Boy and the Beast is set to begin screening in Japan from July 11th 2015, with international screenings to subsequently follow.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Mamoru Hosoda in April 2013 regarding Summer Wars and Wolf Children in particular. You can read my interview HERE. More information on this film will be posted up on The Otaku’s Study as it is made available.
