After a decade-long hiatus, Hayao Miyazaki dazzles again with “The Boy and the Heron”. Dive into a mesmerizing world with Mahito, a young boy seeking his mother, where the living and the departed coexist. In this realm, death opens new beginnings, and life dances anew.
Brought to life with Miyazaki’s iconic hand-drawn animation and produced by Studio Ghibli’s Toshio Suzuki, the film boasts a soulful score by Joe Hisaishi. Plus, the theme song “Spinning Globe” is the gift of J-pop superstar, Kenshi Yonezu.
Mark your calendars: opens in US and Canadian theatres on December 8. Don’t miss out!
