Hayao Miyazaki, a Japanese filmmaking giant, is ready to take over the world of animation one last time. Studio Ghibli drops The Boy and The Heron first images, which will be shown for the first time at the Toronto International Film Festival from September 7 to September 17.
The movie has already come out in Japan, and other than a poster, no trailer, plot information, or images were shown before it hit theaters. And even though there was no advertising for it, it did very well at the box office. Now that the movie is ready for the rest of the world to see, Fandango has shared the first official look at it, teasing another animated classic from Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli.

Hayao Miyazaki's The Boy and the Heron Gets North American Release

Hayao Miyazaki's last movie, The Boy and the Heron has finally started to show up online. From what we can tell from these few pictures, the movie is going to be a real show.
The four pictures, which were posted by @DiscussingFilm on X (formerly Twitter), show the main character of the movie, a group of birds, a strange floating object, and a heron with teeth that look like people's. They give a tantalizing first look at what the movie will be like.
The Boy and the Heron was first shown in Japan on July 14, 2023. There wasn't much advertising or hype for the movie, so fans had no idea what it was about. Since then, the movie has gotten a lot of applause, and in September, The Boy and the Heron will make history when it is shown for the first time outside of North America at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Positive things have been said about the movie, and reviewers have praised how it shows its themes, characters, worldbuilding, and animation. The Boy and the Heron is also one of Studio Ghibli's most expensive movies. It may also be the most expensive 2D animated movie ever made in Japan since it cost more than The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, which cost $43.9 million to make.
The Boy and the Heron, which is called "How Do You Live?" in Japan, is unique because it opened in Japanese theaters earlier this year with only an official poster and no trailers or other marketing materials. Keeping this in mind, some people may be surprised by the first official images of the film.
They may have thought that the film's marketing effort in the U.S. would be similar to the one in Japan. But because of how secretive the project is, more information about the movie's story is still being kept under wraps. This is likely to stay the case until the movie comes out in theaters.
Miyazaki has had a huge influence on animation, whether it's the very detailed world of "Spirited Away" or the emotional story of "My Neighbor Totoro." The well-known director said he was going to stop making movies after his 2013 movie, The Wind Rises, which got great reviews when it came out. The Boy and the Heron will be his last full-length feature picture, but it looks like he still had one more thing up his sleeve.
GKIDS will put the movie in theaters in North America, but there isn't a set date yet. Fans may still have to wait a while before an official release date is given, but the film will definitely be shown for the first time in North America on September 7, 2023, at the Toronto International Film Festival. It will be the opening film for the festival.
Even though there will likely be more newsabout The Boy and the Heron in the coming months, most fans will have to wait until the film's actual release overseas, which American distributor GKIDS says will happen later this year. This may not be the last Studio Ghibli movie, but it is almost certainly the last one that Hayao Miyazaki will direct. When it comes out, it will be a sad end to a big time in anime history.


Studio Ghibli is now touring Japan with Hayao Miyazaki's first new movie in ten years, and The Boy and the Heron have released the first shots from the very secretive movie! With Hayao Miyazaki's first new work in ten years, Studio Ghibli decided to go against a major trend by saying that, other than the art celebrating the new film's announcement, they would not release any promotional images, trailers, story synopses, promos, or other information about the film until it came out in theaters. Studio Ghibli has kept up this hidden pattern of advertising as it gets ready for its full launch around the world.
