“Teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop call themselves the “Don Glees,” an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. As disaster strikes their expedition, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life. Director Atsuko Ishizuka follows up her critically acclaimed series A Place Further Than the Universe with her first original feature film. With luminescent animation and lush backdrops, Goodbye, Don Glees! is a tender coming-of-age story about the fearlessness of being young and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery.”


Goodbye, Don Glees! is the first original feature from writer/director Atsuko Ishizuka, who previously directed the widely lauded series A Place Further Than The Universe. A coming of age story, it is about three childhood friends who find their world larger than they ever realized as they drift apart. Written & directed by Atsuko Ishizuka, the film’s animation is by Madhouse, with art direction by Ayano Okamoto, and character designs by Takahiro Yoshimatsu. The movie premiered in Japan in February of this year, with its North American premiere at Anime Expo 2022.

GKIDS & Fathom Events will have exclusive fan preview events for the movie on September 14 & 15, followed by a limited theatrical release from GKIDS beginning on September 16. Get your ticket now at
