Wolf Children Director’s Latest: A Boy And His Beast

From the guy who brought us The Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, and Wolf Children – one of my favourite films – comes A Boy And His Beast. Kotaku has dubbed it to be an anime take on The Jungle Book. Going by the trailer it seems set to be a cross between Summer Wars and Wolf Children in terms of tone. The anthropomorphic animals on the whole appear to be fairly cartoony with an animation style open to comedic expression and antics, promising plenty of action. That said, some of the themes and emotions on display strive for a level of adult realism and power more akin to the creator’s last endeavour.

The film is out in Japan with a Western release no doubt soon following.
