Your Name. and Weathering With You director Makoto Shinkai has unveiled the title of his first movie in three years, Suzume no Tojimari.

Set for a Fall 2022 release, the upcoming film follows the liberation and growth of a young girl named Suzume, who travels around Japan to close doors that promise calamity and destruction:

“Suzume, a 17-year-old girl who lives in a quiet town in Kyushu, meets a young man on a journey “looking for doors.” Suzume follows him to a ruin to a dilapidated building in the mountains and finds a free-standing, undisturbed door t as if “it” alone were saved from devastation. Suzume feels drawn by an invisible power and reaches out to the door… Soon, doors all over Japan start opening one after another. The doors that opened must be closed to shut out calamity that lays on the other side.

—Stars, sunset, and the morning sky. The places she wanders into have a sky where all hours of the day seem to blend together—
Beckoned by the mysterious doors, Suzume’s “journey of closing doors” begins.”

Shinkai will serve as director, story and screenplay writer while Masayoshi Tanaka will work on character design, Kenichi Tsuchiya will serve as animation director and Takumi Tanji will be the art director. STORY inc., CoMix Wave Films and Toho Co., Ltd will produce and distribute.

Stay tuned for the official trailer and release date of Suzume no Tojimari.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Spider-Man: No Way Home has received a perfect Rotten Tomatoes score.
