Anime News Network is reporting that GKIDS will be releasing the Patema Inverted anime film to North American theaters in 2014 or later.

The film takes place in an underground world where tunnels extend everywhere. Even though they live in dark and confined spaces, people wear protective clothes and lead quiet and enjoyable lives. Patema, a princess in her underground village, loves to explore the tunnels. Her favorite place is a “danger zone” that her village prohibits people from entering. Even though she’s scolded, Patema’s curiosity can’t be held back. No one ever explained what the supposed danger was.

On her usual trip to the “danger zone,” Patema faces unexpected events. When hidden secrets come to light, the story begins to unfold, starting with a boy who lives upside-down to her world. “When you let go of her arm, the girl falls to the sky.”

Patema Inverted is also scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom, Germany, Korea, and Taiwan.
