If Popeye could make his fully cameo appearance in Makoto Shinkai's next film, I called it "Rumor's Delight", it's like Anchors Aweigh but his version,
A story about a Tokyo schoolgirl named Rui Yamane with her love interest (or friend) named Bill Seethers embarks a journey to save Tokyo from a spreading of Covid-a-teen (a villain that spreads covid-19 from space) to get the Marvelous Feast.

Guest stars Popeye (Voiced by Eric Bauza) dancing with Rui in his segment (just like Jerry dancing with Gene kelly)

Cameos is weathering with you stars: Hodaka Morishima was seen at the Tokyo park, and Hina Amano working at Joyful Burger

Shinkai give Joshua Moshier their new music for the film while RADWIMPS will not reprise their music for the film

Production company by CoMix Wave films and Distributed by Paramount Pictures and Toho family Entertainment
POPEYE is a courtesy of Turner Entertainment Co.

Me too! My grandmother used to tell me that if I want to be strong like Popeye, that I should eat my spinach. I even buy Allen's brand "Popeye" spinach. Oh, BTW, I got 16/20.
