The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With “The Boy And The Heron” Composer Joe Hisaishi

The Boy And The Heron” had its North American premiere at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival, where it was 2nd runner-up to the People’s Choice Award. The new Hayao Miyazaki film has garnered strong reviews, winning Best Animated Feature from the New York and Los Angeles Film Critics and has now been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score for Miyazaki’s close collaborator Joe Hisaishi. The world-renowned Japanese composer has scored all but one of Miyazaki’s films, and his latest is receiving considerable praise. Hisaishi was kind enough to spend a few minutes talking with us about his work on the film, which you can listen to below. Please be sure to check out the film, now playing in theaters from GKIDS, which is up for your consideration in all eligible categories at this year’s Academy Awards. Thank you, and enjoy!
