Anime Limited License A Letter To Momo for UK Theatrical Release

a_letter_to_momoAnime Limited have recently announced that they will be releasing the Hiroyuki Okiura directed film, A Letter To Momo, as a UK wide cinema release, with showings starting later this year.

For those unaware A Letter to Momo is an anime-drama that follows the story of Momo, an 11 year old girl whose entire world has been rocked by the untimely death of her father. Forced to leave her life in Tokyo and move to the small island where her mother grew up, Momo is tormented by a letter her father wrote to her – a letter containing only two words: Dear Momo. Soon after her arrival on the island, mysterious goings-on begin to torment the residents and Momo decides to uncover the truth behind them once and for all.

The film was originally shown in 2011 at the Toronto International Film Festival and has since become a cult-favourite, with director Hiroyuki Okiura and Production I.G joining forces to create magical, emotional and wonderful story, as Andrew Partridge, preside of Anime Limited explains:

‘I’ve had my eyes on Momo ever since it screened at Scotland Loves Anime in 2011 – we’re very excited to have this in our catalog and will be organising a limited theatrical run as soon as the dub is completed in the USA!”’

As Andrew mentioned, as soon as the English Dub is produced then Anime Limited will begin screening the film in a variety of Cinemas across the UK, with exact locations and times to be confirmed in the coming months.
