Four-year-old Kun’s life is turned upside down when his parents arrive home one day with their new baby girl Mirai. Kun soon grows jealous of the attention his baby sister is receiving from his mother and father. However, Kun’s life takes another unexpected turn when a mysterious man appears in the garden of their house – a man, who it transpires, is actually the family dog in human form. Kun also has another surprise visitor – a teenage girl claiming to be future Mirai. Together, they embark on a series of adventures, and Kun discovers his family’s incredible history…

Mamoru Hosoda returns with another magnificent crowdpleaser. The mix of time-travel fantasy and family drama makes for an endlessly dynamic, inventive film. Boasting a wonderfully realised portrait of childhood alongside the superb visuals and music we’ve come to expect from Hosoda’s films, Mirai truly is a delight for all ages. With the voices of: Moka Kamishiraishi; Haru Kuroki; Gen Hoshino; Kumiko Asoa.
