New Trailer Reveals Suzume no Tojimari’s Real Villain

Suzume no Tojimari is Makoto Shinkai’s upcoming brainchild that every otaku has been looking forward to. After films like Your Name and Weathering With You, it’s only natural for the world to look forward to Shinkai’s next endeavor.

This time, the movie magician is bringing us the concept of doors, which often indicate opportunities. In this film, however, they’re nothing less than omens of disaster.

Suzume no Tojimari’s latest trailer shows how the catastrophe begins when Suzume opens the mysterious door. The film will open in Japan on November 11, 2022.

While Shinkai’s films don’t feature an antagonist, he has made this one a little different. The trailer shows that a mysterious cat-like creature, Daijin, who speaks human language, appears to Suzume and turns Souta into a chair.

Moreover, Daijin also tries to stop the pair from closing the doors and takes pleasure in witnessing death and destruction. Considering the facts, the only deduction is that this cute and tiny creature is actually the real villain.
