Honeybee Hutch was featured at Shochiku's booth.

2010 is the 40th anniversary year of Honeybee Hutch. The 1989 series was titled "Minashigo Hutch" which means "Orphan Hutch", but "Minashigo" was changed to "Mitsubachi"(Honeybee) in the new movie.

Hutch had to bear hardships such as being orphaned, bullied, and befriending other insects only to see them die.

In the new movie, Hutch is still searching his mother. At a town called Sepiatown he befriends Amy, a kindhearted human girl who can talk with insects.

Many other insects will appear in the movie. Some look friendly, others not.

The new Hutch looks kind of mischievous.


Directed by Tetsuro Amino of Broken Blade. To hit the theatres on July 31, 2010.
