The upcoming anime movie A New Dawn has received an international teaser visual, which features a different character and location from its previous visual.

The French-Japanese co-production is set to premiere in Japan in 2025 and was selected for the 77th Cannes Film Festival’s 2024 Annecy Animation Showcase. Cannes describes the plot as:

The Obinata Fireworks Shop factory is getting prepared for an administrative action for confiscation tomorrow. It has been six years since Keitaro has been holed up in a closed-down factory creating fireworks by himself, chasing after an illusion of his father who vanished. It is a story about three young people who overcome the extreme weather conditions, disasters and environmental problems imposed on them and establish their own identities.
