Universal Pictures Home Entertainment: Mirai

From acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda (Wolf Children) comes a daringly original story of love passed down through generations. When four-year-old Kun meets his new baby sister, his world is turned upside down. Named Mirai—(meaning "future")—the baby quickly wins the hearts of Kun's entire family. Kun becomes increasingly jealous of her, until one day he storms off into the garden, where he encounters strange guests from the past and future – including his sister Mirai as a teenager! Together, Kun and Mirai go on a journey through time and space, uncovering their family's incredible story, in this magical and emotionally soaring adventure about the ties that bring families together and make us who we are.

"An intimately warm hug of a movie that has the power to move us to tears" (Carlos Aguilar, The Wrap), MIRAI holds the distinction of being the first animated feature from Japan to be nominated at the Golden Globes for Best Animated Feature and is the 2019 Annie Award winner for Best Animated Feature-Independent. MIRAI on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital takes viewers behind-the-scenes of this acclaimed film with captivating bonus content including an interview with director Mamoru Hosoda and a visit to Studio Chizu.
