Netflix unveils official trailer for ‘Drifting Home’

“Drifting Home” will air on September 16

Netflix has released the official trailer for the highly anticipated animated feature Studio Colorido Drift home.

The nearly two-minute trailer takes viewers through the sixth graders and childhood friends of Kosuke and Natsume’s journey with six other kids after they get caught up in an otherworldly phenomenon that drifts the abandoned apartment complex they used to play in along the ocean.

The kids brainstorm ways to survive at sea as they investigate the secrets the mysterious apartment complex holds. In the process, Kosuke and Natsume reminisce about the memories they shared as neighbors in the old building. The two must then make a choice: abandon the place that holds so many of their childhood memories or return to safety.

The official trailer also featured the movie’s theme song “Blush” by ZUTOMAYO, the Japanese rock band that performed the hits “Darken”, “Can’t Be Right”, and “MILABO”.

In September 2021, Netflix released the very first movie of the movie Trailerwith a quick montage of clips that feature the film’s central premise and main characters Kosuke and Natsume.

The streaming site then released two more teasers in April and June 2022 which features the first moments leading up to the strange phenomenon, as well as the fun adventures the kids had while on the ocean.

Drift home will be directed by Hiroyasu Ishida and will be produced by Studio Colorido, the production company behind the award-winning 2020 animated film At a glance. Ishida also directed penguin highway (2018), which was nominated for Best Animation at the 42nd Japanese Academy Film Awards.

The upcoming film is Studio Colorido’s third animated feature and is set to premiere September 16 on Netflix. – with reports by Juno Reyes/
