Liz and the Blue Bird | Official US Trailer from Eleven Arts on YouTube.

Film animation adaptation of Takeda Ayano's novel Sound! Euphonium Kitauji High School's Concert Band: Haran no Dainigakusho.

The second Kyoto Animation feature film from A Silent Voice(2016)'s director Yamada Naoko and writer Yoshida Reiko.

Best friends Mizore and Nozomi are star oboe and flute players in the Kitauji High School brass band. With graduation on the horizon and pressure mounting from their final musical competition, the duo struggles to perform in harmony.

A spin-off film adaptation of the Hibike Euphonium! series, Liz and the Blue Bird dances between the parallels of a charming fairy tale, a moving musical piece, and a delicate high school friendship.

Starring Tanezaki Atsumi, Toyama Nao, Fujimura Konomi, Honda Miyu
