If you are already a fan of Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You or, if you haven’t seen it yet but are dying to, you will be thrilled with today’s Twitter announcement from GKIDS Films.


Because, yes, it’s official (Yay!) — Shinkai’s hit film ‘Weathering With You‘ will get a Blu-Ray and DVD release on September 15th, along with a Steelbook version.

Special features on the Blu-Ray and DVD will include director interviews, featurettes and several official trailers.

GKIDS also announced a Collector’s Edition of the celebrated movie, with details on that release coming soon.

Weathering With You was released in Japan in July, 2019 and tells the story of two teenagers — a boy, Hodaka, who runs away from home and a girl, Hina, who is able to control the weather during a time of turbulent weather patterns.

The critically-acclaimed film has currently grossed more than $192 million worldwide, with $127 million in Japan alone, over $45 million in China and almost $8 million in the U.S. and Canada.

The film is Shinkai’s highest-grossing movie of all time.
