The first teaser for Makoto Shinkai‘s next movie has been revealed!

After Your Name and Weathering With You, Makoto Shinkai is back with a new movie – Suzu no Tojimari. The title actually means Suzu’s Door-Locking. This movie is set to be released on November 11 in Japanese cinemas. Once again, CoMix Wave Films serves as the animation production company while Toho is handling the release.


This first teaser promises an exceptional animation and another great lyrical adventure. In fact, this is basically Makoto Shinkai’s trademark. Along with the teaser, a poster featuring the main character was released.

Official synopsis:

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.


The movie does not have an official English title yet nor an international release date. But we will keep you update as soon as it is announced.
