BELLE, the latest anime sensation from Oscar®-nominated director Mamoru Hosoda (Wolf Children, MIRAI) will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, as well as a special feature-packed 4K UHD Blu-ray Collector’s Edition (https://amzn.to/3QffnTr) that includes the film’s beloved soundtrack on 27th June, and to celebrate, we are giving away a Blu-ray!
An original story inspired by the realisation that his own children will grow up in an increasingly online age, Hosoda’s BELLE is the story of Suzu, a country girl who becomes a music sensation in the virtual world of “U” with the mesmerising avatar Belle. When her fame attracts the attention of a fearsome yet mysterious user known only as “Dragon”, Suzu will discover where the line between the online and offline self really lies.
Premiering to a historic 14-minute standing ovation at the 74th Cannes Film Festival, BELLE released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland in February to critical acclaim, with 5 “awe-inspiring” stars from us here at Critical Popcorn, and the film being called “spellbinding” (Robbie Collin, Telegraph), and “set to become a modern animated classic” (Gavin Spoors, Filmhounds). BELLE has become Hosoda’s highest-grossing film ever, joining the UK Top 10 for highest grossing original anime, and earning over 6.54 billion yen at the Japanese box office.
BELLE is a truly international achievement that gathers top talent from across the globe under the helm of Mamoru Hosoda, who is widely regarded as “one of the finest directors working in animation today” (Jade King, TheGamer). Animated by Japan’s Studio Chizu, the film features character designs from Jin Kim (Disney’s Frozen, Moana), gorgeous artwork from the Oscar®-nominated team of Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart (Cartoon Saloon’s Wolfwalkers, Song of the Sea), and the feature film debut of acclaimed video game composer Ludvig Forssell (Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding), crafting “a soundtrack that will stir your soul” (SciFiNow).
