    The first shot I thought I was watching Grave of Fireflies. Classic Ghibli animation looks awesome as always. This is gonna be amazing. And apparently Miyazaki was not happy with the Studio not promoting his movie in Japan.

    It’ll hit theaters in USA/Canada nationwide and IMAX on December 8, 2023.

    >A young boy named Mahito yearning for his mother ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead. There, death comes to an end, and life finds a new beginning. A semi-autobiographical fantasy about life, death, and creation, in tribute to friendship, from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.


    Special Preview Engagements on November 22, 2023 according to GKIDS’s [pinned comment]( on instagram.

    Oh my goodness, this is gonna be something *special* isn’t it.

    There’s stuff in here that I don’t think I’ve ever seen Miyazaki do before. Like he’s channeling Takahata in some sequences.

  • stracki

    This looks gorgeous. The air raid scene at the beginning feels more subjective and abstract than anything Miyazaki has done before.

    It still feels so unreal that a new Miyazaki is coming. And that we now have a trailer for it. I hope that this will soon get a release date where I live.

    When I saw stills I thought it looked plain but oh my god seeing it in action makes all the difference. This looks fantastic!

  • Sleepy_Azathoth

    Miyazaki is my favorite director so I’ll go into this film so excited because it’s a new Miyazaki movie, but also incredible sad because it’s his last one.

    The last time I’ll get to experience a film of his for the first time. Fuck I’m tearing up just thinking about it. I’m gonna be an emotional mess that day.

    Can’t wait.

    The inscription above the gateway to the dessicated building with the bookshelves is from The Divine Comedy.

    >“​Per me si va ne la città dolente,

    >Per me si va ne l’etterno dolore,
    >Per me si va tra la perduta gente.
    >Giustizia mosse il mio alto fattore:
    >**Fecemi la divina potestate**
    >La somma sapienza e’l primo amore
    >Dinanzi a me non fuor cose create se non etterne, e io etterno duro.
    >Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch’intrate.”

    “THROUGH me you pass into the city of woe:
    Through me you pass into eternal pain:
    Through me among the people lost for aye.
    Justice the founder of my fabric mov’d:
    **To rear me was the task of power divine,**
    Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.
    Before me things create were none, save things
    Eternal, and eternal I endure.
    “All hope abandon ye who enter here.”

    It’s inscribed on the gates of hell.

    You see those moments of art styles from Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Grave of Fireflies, and Howls. Pure chills the entire time.

    I am extremely excited for this. Princess Mononoke is my favorite film of all time, and I’m expecting this movie will most likely affect me in the same way. The visuals are already fantastic. I won’t be watching anything else after this trailer because I’d like to go in as blind as possible.

    poor things and this movie are coming out the same day. It’s going to be a very exciting week at the movies for me come early December.

    I want every single studio who’s been using the really awful cell-shaded CGI anime (looking at you, Netflix) to look at this and tell me you aren’t ashamed of the quality of your own anime.

  • scrivenerserror

    I know he always says each movie is his last movie but I have a feeling this is the last one and it hurts my soul a little.

  • ToodlesXIV

    Wow this made me incredibly emotional. Miyazaki is my favorite artist of all time and this feels so important. Holy cow I can’t wait.
