Makoto Sinkai’s ‘Weathering With You’ Coming to Digital August 4


LOS ANGELES — GKIDS and Shout! Factory have announced the release of Weathering With You, available for digital purchase on August 4, 2020, and on Blu-ray + DVD, and SteelBook format on September 15. A limited-edition collector’s set will be released in November. The new film, from director Makoto Shinkai and the creative team behind Your Name, features music from the band RADWIMPS, and is backed by an all-star voice cast including Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hobbit Trilogy), Alison Brie (GLOW, The Lego Movie franchise), and Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A star Wars Story, Venom).

The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky.

Japan’s official submission for Best International Feature at the 92nd Academy Awards, and a Toronto International Film Festival official selection, this beautiful tale was embraced by audiences when it hit North American theaters in early 2020.

Available on Blu-ray/DVD combo, DVD, SteelBookTM and on EST/VOD, Weathering With You is now available for pre-order.
