Exclusive Sneak Peek at Miyazaki's Last Enigmatic Film Finally Unveiled

Studio Ghibli has been very secretive about Miyazaki's final film ever since it was announced.

We were already aware that The Boy and the Heron (also known as How Do You Live?) would mark the end of Hayao Miyazaki's contributions to Studio Ghibli. However, in a surprising turn of events, the studio has now released the first official images of the film ahead of its release in North America.

Four images from Hayao Miyazaki's last film were recently released on the social media platform X by the ticketing site Fandango. These images have caught the attention of fans, as Studio Ghibli had previously chosen not to release a trailer or any other promotional material for the movie, apart from a single poster that was shared in December.

Take a look at the first glimpse of Hayao Miyazaki's latest movie, titled "The Boy and the Heron." This highly anticipated film is set to hit theaters later this year. Stay tuned for more updates!

The initial images of The Boy and the Heron have been unveiled, showcasing the signature attention to detail and vividness that is often seen in Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki films such as Castle in the Sky and Spirited Away. These images also capture the sense of a vast and enchanting world, hinting at the magical and mysterious adventures that await.

Additionally, there is a depiction of a heron with menacing teeth, which may be interpreted in various ways.

"The Boy and the Heron" is a fantasy movie that originated from a book with the same title. It was released in 1937. In 2020, Studio Ghibli made an announcement that Miyazaki, a renowned filmmaker, would be returning from retirement to create one more film. Miyazaki himself confirmed his involvement in the project over a year later, stating that he wanted to pursue this endeavor despite being retired.

Xgamingserver reported that The Boy and the Heron was recently launched in Japan. Although there is no official release date for North America yet, it is expected to be in theaters in the region by the end of this year.
