Studio Ghibli’s Toshio Suzuki about ‘The Boy and the Heron’ Director Hayao Miyazaki’s future

The producer of ‘The Boy and the Heron’ provided some insight into Hayao Miyazaki’s future goals, highlighting the need for him to refocus his thoughts. Miyazaki hasn’t directed a feature animation in ten years.

Renowned Japanese animator and director Hayao Miyazaki returned with a moving film called “The Boy and the Heron,” a work of magic realism with a solid emotional core.

Taking great inspiration from his own early years, Miyazaki modeled several important characters on people who have had a significant impact on his life, such as the late Studio Ghibli co-founder and filmmaker Isao Takahata, as well as the studio’s co-founder and film producer, Toshio Suzuki.

“The Boy and the Heron” is Miyazaki’s first feature animation since ‘The Wind Rises,’ released in 2013, when he first announced his retirement from cinema.

However, his choice to investigate his wartime experiences in Japan changed a few years later and influenced the development of his next endeavor. This story is what gave rise to ‘The Boy and the Heron,’ making it possibly his most deeply personal film to date.

Is this the beginning of the renowned director’s prolonged presence in the business, or is this the last work he will ever produce? With one exception—that Hayao Miyazaki isn’t considering retiring—the response seems to vacillate between the two extremes.

In an interview with Indiewire, Toshio Suzuki of Studio Ghibli provided insight into the making of the movie and what the future holds for Miyazaki as a director. Suzuki brought up Miyazaki’s renewed assurance in writing original stories. Still, the maestro is engrossed with “The Boy and the Heron,” which is presently showing in theaters. Suzuki asserts that Miyazaki’s creative wellspring for fresh concepts can only flow when he has mental clarity.

“Once he clears his mind with a blank canvas, he usually comes up with new ideas,” said Suzuki. Thus, we must wait a bit longer,” summarizing the buzz around Miyazaki’s artistic approach.

The English-dubbed version of “The Boy and the Heron,” which is slated for premiere in North American theaters on December 8, boasts a voice cast that includes Christian Bale, Florence Pugh, Robert Pattinson, Dave Bautista, Willem Dafoe, and Mark Hamill, among many others.
