The official website for the upcoming anime film adaptation of Level-5 (Yo-kai Watch, Professor Layton)’s fantasy RPG Ni no Kuni has posted a two-and-half minute footage introducing a flying ship’s takeoff scene with one of the male protagonists, Yu (CV: Kento Yamazaki), and Princess Ayesha (Mei Nagano) on board. The clip also features the film’s beautiful symphonic soundtrack music by internationally renowned composer Joe Hisaishi (Miyazaki Hayao, Takeshi Kitano films), 

The Yoshiyuki Momose (Ghiblies Episode 2)-directed fantasy film is set to be released in Japan on August 23, 2019. Its story follows three childhood friends: Yu, Haru, and Kotona. Because of a certain incident, Yu and Haru are transported to a magical world called “Ni no Kuni,” where people’s lives are connected to their counterparts in the real world. Travelling back and forth between the two worlds, Yu and Haru meet Princess Ayesha, who exactly looks like Kotona. As a danger approaching to their important person’s life, they must make an ultimate choice.
