No one in the town knows what the sky looks like. On the night of the town's Halloween festival, a deliveryman accidentally drops the heart he is supposed to deliver.

The official website for Studio 4°C's December 2020 anime film of Akihiro Nishino's Poupelle of Chimney Town (Entotsu-chō no Poupelle) picture book unveiled a teaser trailer and visual on Thursday. The teaser features the ending theme song created by Nishino himself.
Nishino was previously listed as the film's director, but Yusuke Hirota (CGI director for Berserk films, Harmony) is now listed as the director. Nishino is still serving as production supervisor, original creator, and writer, while Atsuko Fukushima (Genius Party, Robot Carnival) is designing the characters. Aeon Entertainment and planning, production, and marketing company Yoshimoto Kōgyō Co., Ltd. is producing the film. TOHO and Yoshimoto Kōgyō Co., Ltd. are distributing the film.
The film will feature new elements and characters that did not appear in the original picture book. Nishino said that because of this, people who have read the book, and people who have not, will both still enjoy the film.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.
