Fourteen years after his directorial debut with “Jin-Roh,” Hiroyuki Okiura will return to the big screen with “Letter to Momo,” set to be released in Japan next year, the film’s production studio Production I.G. announced today.
Masashi Ando (“Princess Mononoke”) serves as animation director, with art director Hiroshi Ono (“Kiki’s Delivery Service”) and a team of very experienced animators.
The story centers around a young girl named Momo who moves to a remote island village, agonizing over a letter she received from her father that contains only two words: “To Momo.” She finds an old book in the attic of her new home, and unexpected things start to happen.
Kadokawa Shoten will handle the property outside of Japan.
