Award-Winning Your Name Coming to North America!

Japanese film Your Name won the Los Angeles Critics Association’s award for Best Animated Feature for 2016 and is on the shortlist for the Oscars® Best animated Feature category.

The day the stars fell, two lives changed forever. High schoolers Mitsuha and Taki are complete strangers living separate lives. But one night, they suddenly switch places. Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body, and he in hers. This bizarre occurrence continues to happen randomly, and the two must adjust their lives around each other. Yet, somehow, it works. They build a connection and communicate by leaving notes, messages, and more importantly, an imprint.

Now, Funimation Films is bringing Your Name to North America – in both English-dubbed and Japanese-with-subtitles formats – beginning on April 7th. Details follow the break.
