Warner Bros. India To Release The Boy & The Heron In Indian Theatres




We had reported in the past that if The Boy And The Heron anime movie gets a release in India, it will be nothing short of a miracle. After PVR Pictures missed out on the rights to bring the movie to the theatres, sources had confirmed that the there was a very slim chance of the movie getting an Indian release.

However, a miracle seems to have presented itself, as the official twitter account of Warner Bros. India revealed on April 8, 2024 that Hayao Miyazaki’s Oscar winning anime movie will be releasing in Indian theatres.

While the official release date of the movie was not divulged, a new poster was released confirming that The Boy And The Heron will release in India in both Japanese with English subtitles and also English Dubbed versions.

The Boy And The Heron (called How Do You Live), released in Japan on July 14, 2023. It became the first ever Studio Ghibli film to get simultaneous IMAX release. It also became the first-ever animated film as well as Japanese film to open the 48th Toronto International Film Festival.

The movie experimented with an unconventional marketing strategy in which the studio decided not to promote the film.

Joe Hisashi composed music for the anime film. The film features 37 soundtracks including the theme song. Kenshi Yonezu performed the film’s theme song, “Chikyuugi”.

The movie will be streaming on Netflix outside of United States and Japan, however the release date has not been confirmed at the time of writing!

The plot of the film is described as:

The plot of the film is set during World War II. Mahito Maki, the protagonist, is a young boy who tragically lost his mother in a hospital fire. When his father remarries, they move from Tokyo to a countryside mansion. This mansion happens to be his mother’s ancestral home, and his father’s new wife is his mother’s sister. With complex emotions, Masato is guided by a mysterious gray heron and finds himself stepping into a different world.
