Suzume no Tojimari Release Date and Synopsis
In addition to the artistic touch specific to the duo Makoto Shinkai CoMix Wave, this first teaser illustrates in video the already known synopsis of Suzume no Tojimari. We follow the story of Suzume, a 17-year-old Japanese girl who lives in the south of the archipelago on the island of Kyûshu. She then meets a mysterious individual (who we see in the first 10 seconds of the trailer) looking for mysterious doors. The latter have appeared recently in Japan and with them a number of disasters. Suzume therefore decides to follow this strange character and comes face to face with one of these famous doors. She then decides to go on a quest and close them all. A film that wants to tell “the story of a young girl’s freedom and growth, taking flight in life” can we read on the official website of the film.
On the occasion of the release of the trailer for Suzume no Tojimari, it was even director Makoto Shinkai who spoke on Twitter:

As mentioned above, Suzume no Tojimari is expected on November 11 in Japan. A date which makes it possible to give an estimate of a French release by comparing with the release of Makoto Shinkai’s latest films: your name and The Children of Time were released in France respectively five and six months after their Japanese release. We can therefore expect to see Suzume no Tojimari in French cinemas around April – May 2023, although we will have to wait for official confirmation to be sure.
