The first teaser trailer for "Tenki no Ko: Weathering With You" ("Weather Child: Weathering With You"), a new animated movie from the director of "Kimi no Na wa" ("your name"), has been released. 

The video provides a glimpse of the two main characters -- Hodaka, a high school student who finds a job in Tokyo as a writer for an occult magazine, and Hina, a girl who has the power to manipulate weather. They meet during a time when the city is experiencing rain nonstop. 

The clip also previews a new song from Japanese band Radwimps, who provided the official soundtrack for "Kimi no Na wa." 

"Tenki no Ko: Weathering With You" is set to premiere in Japan in July. There are plans to release it in Asia, North America, Europe, and South America, according to a Japanese report back in December. 

It is from Makoto Shinkai, who directed "Kimi no Na wa." The body-swap romance became the highest-grossing animated movie in the Philippines back when it was released in December 2016.
