Studio Ghibli’s How Do You Live Called The Boy and the Heron Outside Japan

Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki’s new movie is called How Do You Live in Japan, but it will be The Boy and the Heron outside it. GKIDS announced it picked up the film. When it did, it revealed the new name for it. While it is airing now in theaters in Japan, it won’t show up in North America until 2023.

Here’s the official announcement. It doesn’t note if there will be an English dub or who actors might be should one appear.

This initial reveal also didn’t mention anything about a physical release yet. However, GKIDS is known for that. For example, it did so for the Studio Glibli movie Earwig and the Witch. Movies it handles also often show up on streaming services. That ended happening with films like Promare, which turned up on HBO Max. (That service is now just known as Max.)

This is the second reveal regarding the film today. The Japanese voice actors were also confirmed. There’s also an icon appearing next to the hashtag “#君たちはどう生きるか” that resembles the heron on Twitter.

How Do You Live is airing in theaters in Japan now, but the Studio Ghibli movie will be known as The Boy and the Heron when it ends up appearing worldwide in North American theaters.
