Acclaimed director Makoto Shinkai behind heart-wrenching anime films Your Name and Weathering With You just teased his newest film project and we can hardly contain our excitement!
On Twitter, Shinkai shared a photo showing his work in progress.
“I’m gradually assembling my new work while following the pace of the production of ‘Weathering With You’ three years ago. I don’t have the brainpower to imagine the story, the characters, and the visuals all at once, so I’ve been working on it for months and months, trying to build it up and break it down again. It’s already early summer…” he wrote.

He revealed to fans before that he has been struggling to come up with a new story. “I’ve been writing the screenplay for my new film for the past two months, and every day I don’t know what to think about now, what to say, or what we want to see in a few years. But I still write anyway.”

Sadly, this means that it may take a while before we get to see his new project come to life. But we’ll be counting the days until we do!
