HOW DO YOU LIVE aka THE BOY AND THE HERON (Studio Ghibli • Hayao Miyazaki, 2023)

This could be Hayao Miyazaki's last film? The film production has been very slow. If there is no release delay in Japan, we may see a theatrical release as soon as late summer? GKIDS will likely be the one handling U.S. theatrical distribution.

One of my happiest SDCC moments was when he made an appearance in 2009.

Today producer Toshio Suzuki declared that Studio Ghibli won't publish any image / trailer / advertisment before the release of new Hayao Miyazaki's movie "How do you live ?" on July 14th.
This old teaser poster will remain the only picture available.

So no visual marketing whatsoever besides that old poster? That's an odd choice.

GKIDS is the U.S. distributor.

Miyazaki Hayao’s Final Film ‘How Do You Live’: Maximum Secrecy to Be Maintained Until Release

Producer hints that widely assumed plot details may be wrong.

Studio Ghibli, the iconic Japanese animation studio, will maintain a cloud of secrecy for as long as possible around “How Do You Live,” the final film from maestro Miyazaki Hayao (“Spirited Away,” “Howl’s Moving Castle,” “Princess Mononoke”).

The new movie is scheduled to arrive in theaters in Japan on July 14, but Studio Ghibli and its partners will do away with pre-release advertising and advanced information. To date it has released only a single enigmatic poster of a bird.
In a long interview with Bungei Shunju magazine now available on YouTube, Studio Ghibli president and producer Suzuki Toshio explained the unusual strategy as a ploy to whet the appetites of fans. They have been denied a new film by Miyazaki film since the 2013 “The Wind Rises.”

“They’ll want to see for themselves what the film is about,” Suzuki said. “And to do that, they’ll have to go a theater.”

When the magazine’s editor mentioned that the film is reportedly based on “How Do You Live,” a 1937 coming-of-age novel by Genzaburo Yoshino with a young male protagonist, Suzuki said that Miyazaki “only borrowed the title,” implying that plot descriptions available on the Internet based on summaries of Yoshino’s novel may be incorrect. Miyazaki, however, has previously called “How Do You Live” one of his favorite books.

Not mentioned by Suzuki, though known to long-time Studio Ghibli observers, is that Miyazaki’s perfectionism has previously led to production delays. These have meant that while Miyazaki films may hit their opening dates, they have done so minus the usual weeks and months of press screenings by distributor Toho.

Releasing no ads, trailers or information about the voice cast, however, is an extreme milestone, even for Studio Ghibli.

The film has been pre-sold in overseas territories, but currently has no foreign release dates penciled in. Gkids is set as its U.S. distributor.

GKIDS is honored to announce the acquisition of North American rights to THE BOY AND THE HERON, the new film from Hayao Miyazaki & Studio Ghibli.

Debuting in Japan as #君たちはどう生きるか (translated as How Do You Live), THE BOY AND THE HERON opens in N. American theatres 2023.

GKIDS ANNOUNCES THE NORTH AMERICAN ACQUISITION OF HAYAO MIYAZAKI'S “THE BOY AND THE HERON”

NEW FILM FROM STUDIO GHIBLI OPENS IN JAPAN TODAY

ACADEMY AWARDฎ WINNER HAYAO MIYAZAKI'S FIRST FEATURE IN 10 YEARS

NEW YORK (July 14, 2023) — GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of award-winning animation, announced its acquisition of North American distribution rights to THE BOY AND THE HERON, the highly anticipated new film from the legendary Academy Award-winning Hayao Miyazaki, co-founder of Japan's celebrated animation house, Studio Ghibli. Released in Japan as Kimitachi wa Do Ikiruka (translated as How Do You Live), the film is an original story written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, produced by the Oscarฎ-winning Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki, and features a musical score from Miyazaki's long-time collaborator Joe Hisaishi.

The all-rights deal marks a continuation of GKIDS' long-standing relationship with Ghibli. GKIDS will release THE BOY AND THE HERON theatrically in North America later this year.

Informally referred to in English-language press by its tentative title, How Do You Live, the official international title is unveiled as THE BOY AND THE HERON. The hand-drawn, animated feature — director Miyazaki's first feature film in 10 years — opens exclusively in Japanese cinemas this weekend. In an unprecedented decision by Studio Ghibli, no images, trailers, synopses, advertisements, or other information about the film have been made available to the public prior to its release in theaters in Japan. In keeping with this policy, GKIDS will not release any further details or marketing materials at this time.

"Hayao Miyazaki is a living legend in filmmaking, as evidenced by his Academy Award win for Spirited Away and his two Oscar nominations for Howl's Moving Castle and The Wind Rises,'" said David Jesteadt, GKIDS president. "It's been ten years since the world has seen a new film from Miyazaki-san, and GKIDS is so proud and honored to unveil his latest, highly anticipated masterpiece in North America."

GKIDS handles North American distribution for the famed Studio Ghibli library of films across all theatrical, home video, digital, and streaming platforms. The company has released Studio Ghibli's most recent films in theaters nationwide, including the Academy Award-nominated The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, the Academy Award-nominated When Marnie Was There, From Up on Poppy Hill and more. Since 2017, GKIDS has produced the annual Ghibli Fest, a monthly nationwide theatrical program of Ghibli film screenings in over 800 theaters across the country. The series continues this year with a focus on the films of Hayao Miyazaki.

Miyazaki Hayao’s Final Film to Be Known as ‘The Boy and the Heron,’ Sets North America Release

U.S.-based distributor Gkids has acquired North American rights to Japanese animation maestro Miyazaki Hayao’s final movie. It will release it as “The Boy and the Heron.”

The highly-anticipated film released in Japanese theaters earlier on Friday as “Kimitachi wa Do Ikiruka” (“How Do You Live”). In an unprecedented decision by producer Studio Ghibli no images, trailers, synopses, advertisements, or other information about the film have been made available to the public prior to its Japanese theatrical outing.

“How Do You Live” has been the movie’s informal English title throughout its production phase, but Gkids says that “The Boy and the Heron” is now the official international title. In keeping with Ghibli’s Japan omerta, Gkids says it will not release any further details or marketing materials at the moment.

The film is understood to be based on Genzaburo Yoshino’s 1937 YA book of the same name which tells the story of a 15-year-old boy as he goes on a journey to discovery spiritual growth, poverty and the meaning of life with the help of his uncle, whose advice is communicated to him from a journal. How closely it actually hews to that story is only being discovered by theatrical audiences from Friday.

Gkids indicated that it would give “The Boy and the Heron” a North American theatrical release “later this year.” The picture is also expected to make appearances at various fall festivals. And a late 2023 North American theatrical outing means it has a significant chance of making a run for the Oscars.

The hand-drawn film is written and directed by Miyazaki, produced by the Oscar-winning Studio Ghibli co-founder Suzuki Toshio and features a musical score from Miyazaki’s long-time collaborator Joe Hisaishi.

“Miyazaki is a living legend in filmmaking, as evidenced by his Academy Award win for ‘Spirited Away’ and his two Oscar nominations for ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ and ‘The Wind Rises’,’” said David Jesteadt, Gkids president. “It’s been ten years since the world has seen a new film from Miyazaki-san, and Gkids is so proud and honored to unveil his latest, highly anticipated masterpiece in North America.”

Gkids has handled North American releases of Studio Ghibli’s Oscar-nominated “The Tale of The Princess Kaguya,” Oscar-nominated “When Marnie Was There,” and “From Up on Poppy Hill.” Since 2017, it has produced the annual Studio Ghibli Fest, a monthly North American theatrical program of Ghibli film screenings in over 800 theaters.

Miyazaki was separately given an honorary award at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards in 2014. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures paid tribute to his artwork with a special exhibit when the museum opened in September 2021.

Studio Ghibli last year opened a theme park based on Miyazaki’s works, which features rides and attractions inspired by films such as “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Princess Mononoke.” A “My Neighbor Totoro” stage adaptation by the Royal Shakespeare Company also opened in London, U.K.

The other one is too philosophical sounding for American audiences, I would guess.

The Boy and Heron is much easier, that's assuming that most people know what a heron is.

"How Do You Live" is also the title of a book (Miyazaki's favorite childhood book) but the movie isn't based on the book, it just references it. Maybe that's why?

Re: HOW DO YOU LIVE aka THE BOY AND THE HERON (Studio Ghibli • Hayao Miyazaki, 2023)

Hayao Miyazaki is getting up there in age and while it may be a tough discussion, he’s not getting any younger and making anime films is hard work, so much so that his latest film The Boy and the Heron, thought to be his last, spent the better part of a decade in production. But according to a senior staff member at Studio Ghibli, Miyazaki has more films inside of him.

Speaking to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival where The Boy and the Heron was the opening film, the head of public relations at Studio Ghibli Junichi Nishioka says, quoting the tweet by reporter Eli Glasner, “The Boy and the Heron is not Miyazaki’s final film and that he is already coming into the office with new ideas.”


EDIT: https://www.cbc.ca/news/entertainmen...king-1.6960501
Famed animator Hayao Miyazaki might not be done making films, says Studio Ghibli exec

Speaking through a translator on a TIFF red carpet, a studio vice-president says Miyazaki is still working

Hayao Miyazaki might not be done making movies.

On a red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival for the director's latest film, The Boy and the Heron, Studio Ghibli executive Junichi Nishioka told CBC's Eli Glasner that the animation stalwart is still hard at work.

"Other people say that this might be his last film, but he doesn't feel that way at all," said Nishioka through a translator.

"He is currently working on ideas for a new film. He comes into his office every day and does that. This time, he's not going to announce his retirement at all. He's continuing working just as he has always done."

Dude said he was retiring 25 years ago with Princess Mononoke, then again 22 years ago with Spirited Away as his swan song, then Wind Rises in 2013.

Apparently, he isn't built for retirement.

Now that's some good names. I don't usually bother with dubs on things like this, but I know a good dub cast can help people over the line into checking something out.

Re: HOW DO YOU LIVE aka THE BOY AND THE HERON (Studio Ghibli • Hayao Miyazaki, 2023)

Osamu Tezuka worked himself to death and died at the age of 60. Miyazaki, who wrote a very critical piece about Tezuka upon his death (a critique that was, IMHO, very much deserved), is 82 and still working, having paced himself properly over the decades. There's a documentary about Tezuka that just happens to have been made not long before he died and you can see the horrible pace he put himself through and the terrible food he was eating (largely take-out ramen) and lack of sleep. Very sad. All Tezuka needed was a manager/producer who would screen all job offers and turn down as many of them as possible, allowing him to work selectively only on the most deserving projects.
