Every weekend, my family has a family movie night. We take turns picking a movie and cuddle up on the couch with some snacks. It is one of my favorite times of the week. I know that eventually my daughters will want nothing to do with my husband and I on a weekend night – or any night for that matter – and so I savor it. One movie we watched recently was Napping Princess. I was excited to get an advance copy, and so were my girls. We love Anime in our house, so we were eager to watch it. To be honest, I was a little worried it might be a bit adult for them, but they really enjoyed it.
About Napping Princess
From visionary director Kenji Kamiyama comes a sci-fi fantasy that effortlessly weaves together the rapidly evolving technology of today’s world with the fantastic imagination of the next generation. It was even nominated for Best Animated Feature – Independent, at this year’s Annie Awards.
The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa often dozes off, entering a dream-world called Heartland full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But when her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is kidnapped for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, it’s up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him. Together they realize that Kokone’s dream-world holds the answers to the mystery behind the stolen tech, uncovering a trail of clues to her father’s disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokone’s family.
With an ambitious mix of multilayered action, whimsical characters and inventive machines, Napping Princess is a genre- and universe-blending film that shows that following your dreams is sometimes the best way to discover your past.
