/ 01:26 PM December 14, 2017

A little boy gets to spend a grand time with his older future little sister on this new fantasy film from Mamoru Hosada.


The movie centers around a spoiled little boy named Kun who suddenly felt left out after having a little sister. He later encounters an older version of his little sister, Mirai, who time-traveled from the future. They then share time together, going on magical adventures and exploring new experiences.

Director Mamoru Hosada gained recognition from previous works, namely “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time”, “Summer Wars”, “The Boy and The Beast” and “Wolf Children”.


For the film “Mirai in the Future”, Hosada has been credited for writing the script and the original story.

According to Anime News Network, Hosoda took inspiration from his own experience of raising a son who also felt the same way as Kun after his daughter was born. Hosoda’s daughter also happens to be named Mirai, which can be translated as “future.”

“Mirai in the Future” will open in Japanese theaters on July 20, 2018. JB
