The Deer King to premiere in UK cinemas July 27th

Written by Ross Locksley on 06 Jun 2022



Anime Ltd have announced that Production IG's feature, The Deer King, will be showing in theatres from July 27th.

Despite decidedly lukewarm reviews from the likes of The Japan Times, (2/5 stars) the film is the latest from Masashi Ando who cut his teeth as animation director on Miyazaki's Oscar winning Spirited Away, Satoshi Kon's Paprika and Makoto Shinkai's Your Name. So at least the animation is worth seeing. We'll see for ourselves when the film arrives.

Official Synopsis:
In the aftermath of a brutal war, former soldier Van toils in a mine controlled by the ruling empire. One day, his solitary existence is upended when a pack of wild dogs carrying a deadly and incurable disease attack, leaving only Van and a young girl named Yuna as survivors. Finally free, the pair seek out a simple existence in the countryside but are pursued by nefarious forces. Intent on protecting Yuna at all costs, Van must uncover the true cause of the plague ravaging the kingdom—and its possible cure.
