Australian anime publisher Madman Entertainment have recently shared their second official localised trailer for The Boy and the Beast, the latest animated feature film by Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda (Wolf Children, Summer Wars). You can view this trailer at the top of this post.
Madman Entertainment announced their acquisition of The Boy and the Beast in April 2015, coming as no surprise given they have served as the Australian publisher of Hosoda’s other films (Including DVD and Blu-ray releases of 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.
