Now every first and third Thursday each month,  ANIMATED INSIGHTS BY SHANNON MUIR takes you inside Shannon’s latest reflections on her passion for animation as a medium, and other animated insights about life. To catch up on all posts, check out the Animated Insights portion of the website!  This week, Shannon talks about the anime film MIRAI. My husband and I got a chance to see MIRAI in an English dub shortly before New Year’s 2019 during awards season. As many of you may know, it was nominated for a Golden Globe and Academy Award, and won an Annie Award for Best Animated Independent Feature. I highly recommend this movie as a must-see. The visuals are incredible, and the story very touching. GKids will be releasing this movie on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital on April 9th, 2019, if you are interested. Below is the trailer to let it speak with its own words and images what it is about.
