The visually stunning and brilliant story of anime “Weathering with you” comes to Digital on August 4, DVD and Blu-ray on September 15, and Collector’s Edition Blu-ray November 17.

Having had a theatrical release early in 2020, “Weathering with you” was Japan’s official submission for Best International Feature at the 92nd Academy Awards, and a Toronto International Film Festival Official Selection, it will be available to enjoy starting with a digital release on August 4, now available for pre-order.

The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…

“Weathering with you” is the new film by director Makoto Shinkai, whose previous work includes critically-acclaimed anime “Your name.”

“Your name” producer Genki Kawamura also joins Shinkai.

The English voice cast includes Lee Pace (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” The Hobbit trilogy), Alison Brie (“GLOW,” The LEGO Movie franchise) and Riz Ahmed (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Venom”).

Featuring music by the hit band RADWIMPS.
