“Your Name” Anime Movie Hollywood Live-Action Confirmed!

Anime movie “Your Name” is getting a Hollywood live-action movie produced by J.J. Abrams.

Director Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name was a huge hit with hard-core anime fans, but the film owes no small part of its success to its ability to appeal to viewers outside the otaku market. Sure, it’s got its share of anime tropes, but it’s also a relatable teenage love story, plus a science fiction thriller, and unlike so many other anime films it doesn’t require familiarity with outside source material, spin-offs, or a dictionary’s worth of jargon to provide a complete, satisfying, and emotionally moving experience.
