The extraordinary animated film Weathering With You will be available to purchase in 4K UHD on January 4, 2022 from GKIDS with distribution from Shout! Factory.

GKIDS proudly presents Weathering With You (4K UHD), the much-adored film from director Makoto Shinkai and the creative team, including producer Genki Kawamura, behind the critically-acclaimed, global smash hit Your Name. Featuring music from the hit band RADWIMPS, and backed by an all-star voice cast including Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hobbit Trilogy), Alison Brie (“GLOW”, The Lego Movie franchise), and Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A star Wars Story, Venom), Shinkai has once again brought incredible beauty and a powerful story to the screen. 

The summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hodaka meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strong-willed girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…

Japan’s Official Submission for Best International Feature at the 92nd Academy Awards, and a 

Toronto International Film Festival Official Selection, this magical tale’s awe-inspiring beauty thrilled audiences when the film hit North American theaters in early 2020. 

Also available on Blu-ray™/DVD combo, DVD, SteelBookTM , Collector’s Edition, and on EST/VOD, Weathering With You (4K UHD) is now available for pre-order.
