In case you were wondering what Makoto Shinkai has been doing since 5 Centimeters Per Second, Media Factory released this teaser trailer for his latest project, Hoshi o Ou Kodomo: Children who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below.
And what a trailer it is! The imagery is classic Shinkai: lush backgrounds done with a characteristic color palette — deep blue skies and clouds tinged with yellow and pink. And the piano music at the end of the trailer? Another Shinkai trademark. The film’s due to hit Tokyo theaters in May 2011, but the glimpses offered by this trailer makes me impatient!
