In Hosoda’s Annie-Award-winning Mirai, four-year-old Kun has lived a spoiled life as an only child with his parents and family dog. But when his new baby sister Mirai is brought home and his parents’ attention is divided, life as he knows it is thrown upside down. In an attempt to adapt to this drastic change, he embarks on an extraordinary adventure through time, meeting his family’s past, present, and future selves. In doing so, Kun learns what it means to be a part of a family, but also what it means to be an older brother. Directed by Mamoru Hosoda – his third feature released via Studio Chizu – Mirai is a cleverly written and beautifully animated film for audiences of all ages.
