🚨 This article is FULL of answers to questions about THE BOY AND THE HERON you’ve been asking for months!

-How did we assemble the cast for the English dub?
-Why did we pick Robert Pattinson to play the Heron?
-Why did the international title change?

Spirited Away: Live on Stage was put out by GKIDS. Pretty good, the ensemble cast is mostly excellent.

The Boy and the Heron domestic box office gross: $12,836,313 (December 7 - 10, 2023)

https://www.the-numbers.com/movie/Bo...tab=box-office


EDIT: https://variety.com/2023/film/news/b...gs-1235832406/

“The Boy and the Heron,” a fantastical coming-of-age story from animation maestro Hayao Miyazaki, earned $12.8 million in its opening weekend, becoming the first original anime production to top the domestic box office. The GKids release is showing in Imax and other premium large format auditoriums, which bolstered its record-breaking revenues and helped secure its first place finish. It also benefitted from a lack of big-screen offerings, with holiday blockbusters such as “Wonka” and “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” still waiting to make their debuts in the coming weeks.

Re: 1 & Only Studio Ghibli Thread

The Boy and the Heron has opened at #1 at the domestic box office grossing $12.8 million in its first week and becoming the first Miyazaki film to open at number one in the US. This is a well deserved honor for Studio Ghibli and I hope this allows their audience to grow further.

RealGDT: This is also a testament to a distributor @GKIDSfilms who cares, cares, cares about the entire medium of animation and the films they support.

Re: 1 & Only Studio Ghibli Thread

In planning a blog post on the simultaneous success in the U.S. of two Japanese films, THE BOY AND THE HERON and GODZILLA MINUS ONE, I began researching my past writings on Hayao Miyazaki and found an interview I did with him in 1999 when he came to New York to promote PRINCESS MONONOKE’s showing at the New York Film Festival and its subsequent release by Miramax in the U.S. As far as I can tell, I never published this piece anywhere so I decided to post it on my blog:

THE BOY AND THE HERON is Studio Ghibli’s highest grossing film of all time in North America—and the highest box office achievement of ANY original Japanese animated film! 🔥

Thank you to the fans who made this possible!

Target:

Blu-ray/DVD + exclusive art cards were released on December 24, 2023. Same as the regular Blu-ray/DVD with O-cards but inclusion of art cards (regular price: $14.99, so MSRP should still be $24.99).

Re: 1 & Only Studio Ghibli Thread

I picked up the art card rerelease of Kiki's Delivery Service yesterday to replace my Disney DVD, and while I think it's lame that they all come with the same 6 cards. I had previously picked up a copy of Totoro that included a mini poster (maybe from Walmart?) that I thought was a better pack in, but whatever keeps them on store shelves is a good thing. I will probably go ahead and pick up Spirited Away and Ponyo to replace those dvds too, so I guess I will be stuck with a stack of these cards.

The piece I wrote for New York Times on GKIDS is in print today! THE BOY AND THE HERON is their 13th release to earn an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature. Here’s how they became a powerhouse distributor of independent and international animation: tinyurl.com/bdfzy7pw

Hi, are you on other social media like Threads? I abandoned Twitter last year when Musk started getting really bad and I've heard it's gotten worse.

Congrats on the piece either way.

I technically have other social media accounts, but I don't use them.

I still use Twitter (primarily anime and Japan related content): https://twitter.com/WTK

I think we've been lucky GKIDS has stepped into this space and surpassed expectations. Seems like a very professional outfit handling international animation. I have few complaints with how they've done things since starting out.

IMO, their growth really started once they got control over the Studio Ghibli catalog (Disney seeming didn't want release all of the new Ghibli films). They pretty much want release anything and everything related to Ghibli (especially Hayao Miyazaki). I'm definitely glad they're around. Competition in the anime/animation films space can't be easy (against the likes Crunchyroll/Sony and Netflix).
