The latest ‘Belle’ trailer introduces us to the dazzling virtual world of technicolor

With the opening of Mamoru Hosoda’s latest movie in US cinemas this Friday, Studio Chizu and the film’s distributor have shared a new trailer for Belle. The over three minute clip shows the opening scene of the film in its entirety and introduces us to U, Belle’s metaverse-esque virtual world. The trailer is primarily a showcase of Studio Chizu’s virtuoso animation work, but we also get to hear an equally great English cover of Millennium Parade’s “U” and learn more about the setting.
