The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Boy And The Heron”

For this week’s second podcast review, I am joined by Brendan Hodges & Giovanni Lago. Today, we are reviewing the newest film from iconic director Hayao Miyazaki, “The Boy And The Heron,” starring Soma Santoki, Masaki Suda, Aimyon, Yoshino Kimura, Shōhei Hino, Ko Shibasaki, Takuya Kimura and on the English dub, Luca Padovan, Robert Pattinson, Karen Fukuhara, Gemma Chan, Christian Bale, Mark Hamill, Florence Pugh, Willem Dafoe & Dave Bautista. In what could be the all-time great master director’s final film, please tune in as we discuss its themes around death, legacy, grief, hope in the face of devastating collapse, and more in our SPOILER-FILLED review. In our reflective discussion, we also review the voice performances, animation, beautiful score from Joe Hisaishi, and more. Thank you. We hope you enjoy it!
