New Studio Ghibli Movie Teased

At a recent event for The Boy and the Heron, Goro Miyazaki, the executive producer, provided insights into Studio Ghibli’s upcoming film. During his presentation, Miyazaki explained, “I’m creating a panorama box with various scenes from past works and scenes that don’t exist, but it’s boring if all I do is past works, so I asked him to make one for the next film. I told him to make the next one, and that’s what I’m working on now.” [Thanks, Game Watch!]

The director added, “I’m looking forward to an old-fashioned adventure film, but I don’t think they’ll do it exactly like that.” This comment has sparked much discussion among fans.

The event also showcased a “layouts” section featuring 206 drawings from the production process of The Boy and the Heron. These layouts, serving as blueprints for animation, highlight the richness of hand-drawn expressions using paper and pencil.

The Boy and the Heron is an Academy Award-winning film from Studio Ghibli. The film is available to pre-order in UHD for $19.99 with a pre-order price guarantee on Prime Video. The official release date is June 24, 2024, at 9:00 PM PDT.
