Want to know what anime movies are coming to theaters in 2024? We can tell you!

Anime movies have been extremely popular for years, and Western fandom for anime continues to grow. Anime influences countless creators in the US. Huge fan interest means that more and more anime movies are playing in US movie theaters — and a lot more quickly, following their Japanese premieres, than they used to. Thanks to distributors like GKids, the Studio Ghibli movies and other classics regularly come back to the big screen, too.

2023 ended with the incredible new movie from Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki, THE BOY AND THE HERON. Studio Ghibli is all over the 2024 calendar thanks to the return of Studio Ghibli Fest. We've got MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM SEED FREEDOM and HAIKYU!! THE DUMPSTER BATTLE in May, and much more to come.

Here are the anime movies coming to US theaters soon.

Anime Movies Coming to Movie Theatres in 2024

The following movies are set for U.S. release (or, in some cases, re-release) in the beginning of 2024.

Spy X Family Code: WhiteSpy X Family Code: White | Cinemark

The fan-favorite family of a spy, an assassin, a telepath, and a psychic are on a brand-new mission, but this time, they are hitting the big screen. SPY X FAMILY CODE: White follows the Forgers, a family of Loid, Yor, and Anya, who all seem normal, but otherwise are an oddball group of a spy, an assassin, and a telepath, along with a clairvoyant pet dog, Bond. As a part of his undercover mission, Operation Strix, Loid plans a vacation with the family, which turns out to be one adrenaline-rushing adventure for all, thanks to Anya, and the trio attempts to save the world. Unlike what we have seen in the series, this spin-off movie will steer away from the original manga, which makes for a great watch for even those who are new to the franchise. Even if you are not acquainted with the Forgers, but love a good spy adventure, then the film adaptation might be just the thing to watch. [April 19]
