Comments from the original author and staff are as follows.

Original by Sachiko Kashiwaba:
Ten years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake.
I hope that all those affected by the disaster will soon forget about that horror, sadness, and pain.
I think it was a day when I told myself that I shouldn't forget.
Speaking of the disaster area, it was Sanriku, but in the last decade, there have been areas called disaster areas all over Japan, and now it is a corona wreck.
I want a bright feeling in my heart.
Mayoiga in Tohno Monogatari is a story about Mayoiga making people who get lost in the mountains happy.
Like the original Mayoiga, 'Cape Mayoiga' should make the people you meet happy.
My heart is filled with bright and happy feelings. I am confident that you will make such a wonderful animated movie, and I am grateful.
Please go to see Mayoiga in Kitazaki.

Director Shinya Kawatsura:
Delicious rice and the smile of the person next door.
Good scented tea and fun conversation.
A warm connection that is not tied to the word family.
'Cape Mayoiga' is a house where people who need that comfort meet.
It is a place where you can regain your independence by giving elasticity to your exhausted mind.
Be sure to enjoy the soft scenery and music at the theater and step into Mayoiga with them.

Screenplay Reiko Yoshida:
People may be alive, lost in the present, lost in the future, and left in the past.
I read the original and thought about that.
Although I'm at a loss, I want to start from here ... I hope to make it a home-like work that makes me want to come back here.

Teaser PV Narration Akiko Kuji (Fuji TV Announcer):
A large thatched-roof house in bright green.
For a girl who takes off her shoes in the dirt and lays down on a tatami mat
I repeated the appearance of myself from Iwate.
It's as if you can hear the scent of grass and the murmuring of the river.
Various legends blend into our lives,
A work set in the nature of Iwate that gently envelops us
I will be in charge of PV narration
I am very happy.

The animated movie 'Cape Mayoiga' will be released in 2021.
