Mamoru Hosoda’s Wolf Children
Hiya Readers! A coworker of mine just told me about an amazing award-winning werewolf film that I had never heard of before – Wolf Children. It is a stunning animated film by Mamoru Hosoda. I can’t believe this movie slipped under my radar and I can’t wait to watch it.
Wolf Children is a staggeringly beautiful animated feature film from director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars). This epic cinematic achievement follows Hana, a woman who falls in love with a Wolf Man and gives birth to two half human, half wolf children. After the tragic death of her beloved, Hana seeks refuge in rural town where she attempts to build a life for herself and her children.
Here is the trailer:
Funimation recently announced that the Wolf Children English Dub will premiere at Otakon this August. That means that as of right now the movie is only available in Japanese with English subtitles.
What are your thoughts on the Wolf Children? It looks like such a beautiful movie. I adore 2D films and love animated Asian films for their creativity and beauty. I can’t wait to see Wolf Children. How about you?
