"The Wolf Children, Ame and Yuki," the latest animated feature from director Mamoru Hosoda, will be released in France on Aug. 29, about one month after it hits theaters in Japan.
It is rare for a Japanese feature film to be released in Europe immediately following its Japan premiere, which falls July 21.
A special premiere event is scheduled to be held in Paris. Details will be announced later.
Also, an exhibition devoted to Hosoda's artwork will be held at Paris gallery Arludik, which has specialized in works of animation and manga since 2004. The event will be held from June 26 to July 21.
