Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki To Have Its Worldwide Premiere in France!

Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki, the new anime movie by the creator of Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo and Summer Wars Mamoru Hosoda, will be getting its first screening in France. Yes, it will be earlier than the Japanese premiere. The first screening will be at the UCG Ciné Cité Les Halles theater, Paris on June 25.

That is more than a month earlier than the theatrical launch of the movie in japan on July 27 and Hosoda-san himself will be attending the premiere of his latest work in Paris, too!

There will also be a preview screening of the movie in France on June 6. It will be a part of the biggest animation festival in the world the Annecy. After the preview of Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki, Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo will be shown to the audience.

Viz Media is the rights owner for all of Europe including France but excluding UK. The title under which the company will release the movie will be Wolf Children.

Just seen ‘Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo’…strangely called ‘Voyage vers Agartha’…seems like there are a lot of anime there. ‘Asura’ should be a first screening too, though.

Seems so – ep. 1 of ‘Ao No Exorcist’ is also screened. :)

Hmmm…always though that this is one of those ‘art’ festivals. Never assumed they would premier an anime there.

Yeah…France does that to people. It’s strange to premiere an anime there, I believe.
