Mamoru Hosoda’s Mirai English Dub Clips Streamed

Mamoru Hosoda’s latest film, Mirai, is hitting American theaters soon, and in anticipation, GKIDS is streaming a few new clips of the film’s English-language dub.

The English cast includes:

Victoria Grace (Mirai)
Jaden Waldman (Kun)
John Cho (Mirai’s father)
Rebecca Hall (Mirai’s mother)
Daniel Dae Kim (Mirai’s great grandfather)
Crispin Freeman (Mysterious man)

The film will be showing nationwide as part of a “special event” November 29, December 5 and December 8, while also playing in select theaters starting November 30. It’s all a bit complicated, but GKIDS’ site will sort you on out.

Speaking of GKIDS, here’s their synopsis of the film:

From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children) and Japan’s Studio Chizu comes MIRAI, a daringly original story of love passed down through generations. When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai (meaning “future”), the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun’s entire family. As his mother returns to work, and his father struggles to run the household, Kun becomes increasingly jealous of baby Mirai… until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai, as a teenager. Together, Kun and teenage Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family’s incredible story. But why did Mirai come from the future?
