‘Your Name’ English-Dubbed Trailer Released For US, UK Screenings; Makoto Shinkai Awarded ‘Hit Maker Of The Year’
The Japanese animated movie, “Your Name” that has been creating a ruckus these past few months just released its new English-dubbed trailer for the film screenings in US and United Kingdom. Meanwhile, Makoto Shinkai has just received the “Hit Maker of the Year” award.
Anime Limited has just released on Nov. 14 the new trailer for “Your Name”, otherwise known as “Kimi No Na Wa” and has also announced the cast for the English dub version. Anime Limited, also known as All The Anime, is a British anime distribution company that manages the movie screenings of “Your Name” throughout the United Kingdom. The exclusive screening for UK and Ireland is set to premiere on Nov. 18.
The English dub cast includes Michael Sinterniklaas and Stephanie Sheh, who will be voicing the two main characters of the story, Tachibana Taki, and Miyamizu Mitsuha, respectively. Sinterniklaas has lent his voice for countless English-dubbed animated productions such as “Bleach” and “Full Metal Alchemist”. Sheh, on the other hand, has started voice animating in 2001 and has voiced the characters of Orihime Inoue of “Bleach” and Hinata Hyuga of “Naruto Shippuden”, all dubbed in English.
Meanwhile, the creator of “Your Name”, Makoto Shinkai has just won the Grand Prix award of “Hit Maker of the Year 2016” in Tokyo on Nov. 12. He has expressed that he never expected the said animated film to do so well in Japan even worldwide. He has also commented on the claims that he has been dubbed as the next Hayao Miyazaki,
“Putting me on the same level with Hayao Miyazaki is an overestimation. I can’t be like him. He has his own way of directing, which only he can. I felt it so once again, when I watched “Kurenai No Buta” last night,” Shinaki said.
“Kurenai No Buta” otherwise known as “Porco Ross” is an animated film by Hayao Miyazaki, which was released in July 1992. Makoto Shinkai’s movie, “Your Name” premiered on July 3 at Anime Expo Convention 2016 in Los Angeles, California. The movie will be released in the US, UK, and certain countries in Asia this December as it applies to qualify for a nomination at the upcoming Academy Awards.
