Warner Bros. released the full trailer of the upcoming animated film Gusko Burori no Denki. Directed by Gisaburo Sugii (Astro Boy, Lupin III: The Secret of Twilight Gemini), the movie is scheduled to open in Japan on July 7th.
Gusko Budori no Denki is based on a novel by Kenji Mayazawa about a boy who flees his homeland after a natural disaster, and partners with a team of scientists to find a way to prevent something similar from ever happening again. Cast members will include actors Shun Oguri (Detective Conan) and Shiori Kutsuna (Beck).
Sugii has adapted other Miyazawa works in the past, most notably the classic fairy tale Night on the Galactic Railroad. Just like the 1985 film, Gusko Buroki no Denki will feature tons of magical embellishments, and cats.
