Okko’s Inn To Receive Limited Cinematic Release within the UK Next Month

Manga Entertainment UK have announced that Madhouse’s animated feature-length-film Okko’s Inn will receive a limited cinematic release within the UK on 14th July 2019 with the film itself being shown in English dub format.

Synopsis: After losing her parents in a car accident, Okko goes to live in the countryside with her grandmother, who runs a traditional Japanese inn built on top of an ancient spring said to have healing waters. While she goes about her chores and prepares to become the inn’s next caretaker, Okko discovers there are spirits who live there that only she can see – not scary ones, but welcoming ghosts who keep her company, play games and help her navigate her new environment.

The inn’s motto is that it welcomes all and will reject none, and this is soon put to the test as a string of new guests challenge Okko’s ability to be a gracious host. But ultimately Okko discovers that dedicating herself to others becomes the key to taking care of herself.

The latest feature from famed anime studio Madhouse and director Kitaro Kosaka, who was a key animator on numerous classic films at the venerable Studio Ghibli, seamlessly blends immersive, idyllic landscapes with the storybook charm of Okko’s beloved ghosts. Okko’s Inn delivers a rare ghost story that – despite several floating characters – is firmly grounded in the trials and joys of humanity.

Unlike previous cinematic events for Dragon Ball Super, My Hero Academia and Yu-Gi-Oh! The Darkside of Dimensions, of which received wide-cinematic appeal from VUE, Cineworld and Odeon, the film Okko’s Inn will only receive a more traditional limited cinematic in Showcase Cinemas across the UK; a list of which can be seen below.

Manga Entertainment UK also confirmed that those attending this cinematic event will also receive a special Japanese postcard featuring artwork from the film. These, as one would expect, will be in short supply at each location with availability while stocks last.
