Makoto Shinkai Updates On A New Film He’s Working On!

Makoto Shinkai, the man behind Your Name and Weathering With You, has shared an update on a new film he’s writing and hopes to announce it at the end of this year.

Here’s what Makoto said on his personal blog (translated):

I managed to write a proposal in April, overlaid 6 plots, rewrote the script three times, compiled it as the final draft in August, and have been drawing storyboards every day since then. It will take more than a year to complete, with the feeling of continuing to swim with a last-minute breath (I hope to make a formal production announcement by the end of 2021). Why does it take so long to make an animated movie that lasts only about two hours? In a world that changes drastically in a few months, is it okay to spend this time as usual? You may regret it when you die. It was a year when I just went to my desk with the feeling that I had given up halfway, even though I still couldn’t be freed from such pitiful questions, but I couldn’t do anything else.

It was just such a flat job, but when I look back on the past year, I am surprised. A year ago, I now feel like someone else. Even though I rarely went out, I met only a few people, and I started making only one work, but I am no longer kept the same. The proposal written under the state of emergency now seems to have been thought by someone somewhere far away. Even if you go around the lines of the script, it seems that you can quarrel between yourself a few months ago and yourself now. Probably neither of them is more correct, and I have no choice but to continue the production with the feeling of getting to know the other.

I wonder what this film would be about? After watching Your Name, I feel like this man will never disappoint me because he knows how to bring out the emotions inside of me. Guess we’ll have to wait until the end of 2021 to find out more about the film.
