The anime film was helmed by Makoto Shinkai and follows two high-schoolers, a boy and a girl who find themselves in the precarious situation of having switched bodies without any recollection of how this could have happened. This leads the pair to unravel the Freaky Friday reminiscent problem they have walked into and attempt to unravel the mystery that led to their body switch. All while attempting to save themselves from disaster that threatens not only them but their loved ones as well.

Although the film will not a direct adaptation, López Estrada will be providing a re-imaged version with a similar plot as the original animated film. The film also has J.J. Abrams attached as producer under his label Bad Robot. Abrams will produce the film alongside Hannah Minghella, Jon Cohen, and Genki Kawamura. The original film’s production company, Toho will remain attached to the remake as they plan to handle the distribution of the remake in Japan.

The film has seen a revolving door of filmmakers and screenwriters as Eric Heisserer was previously attached to write the film but would later exit the project as well as directors Marc Webb and Lee Isaac Chung who were previously attached to direct the film, both of which would eventually exit the project. López Estrada will now be taking the reigns of Your Name in both writing and helming the film while he also works on another popular live-action adaptation of the Disney animated film Robin Hood.
