For the first time, footage from “The Boy and the Heron” has been made available to the general public outside of Japanese theatres in the trailer, which you can see above. Before the film’s July release in Japan, Studio Ghibli did not make any trailers or other promotional materials available.
How Much Did “The Boy and The Heron” Earn in the Japan Box Office?

The movie will now be screened at numerous prominent film festivals, including those in Toronto, New York, London, and San Sebastian. Despite previously retracting such statements, Miyazaki has declared that “The Boy and the Heron” will be his last film.
The animated film was made by Toshio Suzuki, an 82-year-old animator, as a gift for his grandson. With works like “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Princess Mononoke,” as well as his 2001 film “Spirited Away,” which is still the only non-English animated film to win the Best Picture Oscar, Miyazaki became a well-known personality in the animation industry.
