The opening 12 minutes of the upcoming Makoto Shinkai anime film Suzume will be broadcast on TV on October 28 via Nippon TV’s Kinyoubi Roadshow (Friday Roadshow) program.

The Suzume preview will come in the latter half of the program, which is airing Shinkai’s 2016 hit Your Name on that date.

Suzume will be released in Japanese theaters on November 11, with Crunchyroll to distribute the movie internationally (sans Asia) in early 2023. Crunchyroll describes the film as: 

Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu (located in southwestern Japan) 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 drawn 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 staff includes Shinkai as director, writer, and original creator, Masayoshi Tanaka (Weathering With You and Your Name co-character designer, Her Blue Sky) as character designer, Kenichi Tsuchiya (Flavors of Youth “Love in Shanghai” character designerYour Name) as animation director, Takumi Tanji (Your Name co-art director, Children Who Chase Lost Voices) as art director, and RADWIMPS (Your Name, Weathering With You) and Kazuma Jinnouchi (Ultraman and Ghost In The Shell SAC_2045 co-composer) as music composers.
