From the celebrated Academy Award®-nominated director Mamoru Hosoda and Studio Chizu, creators of Mirai, Wolf Children, and Summer Wars, comes a fantastical, heartfelt story of growing up within the age of social media.
Suzu is a shy, on a regular basis high school student living in a rural village. For years, she has only been a shadow of herself. But if she enters “U”, a huge virtual world, she escapes into the web persona of Belle, a wonderful and globally-beloved singer. Someday, her concert is interrupted by a monstrous creature chased by vigilantes. As their hunt escalates, Suzu embarks on an emotional and epic quest to uncover the identity of this mysterious “beast” and to find her true self in a world where you’ll be able to be any individual.
