The Boy and The Beast is the latest film from acclaimed film director Mamoru Hosoda. Ahead of its premiere a trailer has launched online and boy oh boy is it brimming with that classic Hosoda charm. Hosoda is of course the famed director of The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars and the heartwarming Wolf Children.

The film follows a young boy who stumbles upon a sword wielding bear and accepts an offer to become his apprentice, The Boy and The Beast chronicles his training as he lives between two worlds, Shibuya (Human World) and Jutengai (Monster World).

You can check out the trailer below for a glimpse into Hosoda’s latest fantasy world in The Boy and The Beast. The film is set for release on July 11th, 2015.

As a fan of Mamoru Hosoda and having been privileged enough to meet him and talk at length with him on all manner of subjects I have no doubt in my mind this is the must-watch anime film of 2015. Hosoda is a special mind in anime and the industry is all the more richer with his works coming out of it.
