Goodbye, Don Glees! directed by Atsuko Ishizuka

GKIDS will release Goodbye, Don Glees!, the Japanese anime film from writer/director Atsuko Ishizuka, who previously directed the series A Place Further Than The Universe. The film follows the story of three friends over the course of one summer, as their backyard adventures turn one small incident to a life changing journey.

It was domestically released in February 2022, and stars Japanese voice actors Ayumu Murase (Shoyo Hinata,” Haikyu!!”), Natsuki Hanae (Tanjiro Kamado, “Demon Slayer”), Kana Hanazawa (Akane Tsunemori, “Psycho-Pass”), and Yuuki Kaji (Eren Jaeger, “Attack on Titan”).

GKIDS will release Goodbye, Don Glees! theatrically in both original Japanese language and an all-new English language dub this year.

Teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop call themselves the “Don Glees,” an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. As disaster strikes their expedition, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life.

Director Atsuko Ishizuka follows up her critically acclaimed series A Place Further Than the Universe with her first original feature film. With luminescent animation and lush backdrops, Goodbye, Don Glees! is a tender coming-of-age story about the fearlessness of being young and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery.
