Comix Wave Films Reveals First Ever Teaser Trailer for Makoto Shinkai’s Anticipated Upcoming Film “Suzume No Tojimari (Working Title)” Along With New Key Visual and Japanese Theatrical Release Date!


On the other side of the door, was time in its entirety—

17-year-old Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu when she encounters a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door.” What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly mesmerized by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob…

Doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.

  • The stars
  • The sunset
  • The morning sky
  • Within that realm, it was as though all time had melted together in the sky—

    Drawn in by this mysterious door, Suzume’s journey is about to begin.


    Accompanied only by a simple “I’ll see you later,” the newly revealed key visual features Suzume with her hair up in a ponytail, standing in front of a door holding a small wooden chair with both hands, about to depart on her journey . The water ripples ever so slightly at her feet as the door is cracked open.


    Last but not least, the film is scheduled for a Japanese theatrical release on November 11, 2022. Stay tuned for more information about “Suzume no Tojimari (working title).”
