Back in December, Makoto Shinkai announced his next film. Titled Weathering With You, it’s about a high school student who encounters a young woman with the ability to control the rain. The first trailer has arrived — hat tip to io9 — and as you might expect from a Shinkai film, it looks gorgeous. If you liked what the man did with rain in 2013’s Garden of Words, then you’ll definitely like what you see here.
Weathering With You arrives in Japanese theaters on July 19. Given the massive success of Shinkai’s last film, Your Name, I suspect that at least an announcement of the film’s American release date won’t be too far behind.
