Some masterpieces don’t need actors in front of the camera. This applies, for example, to many films by the Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, who became world-famous as the genius of the Ghibli studios. After a ten-year break, he will soon return with The Boy and the Heron. In the new trailer for the anime film, the voice of Batman star Robert Pattinson can be heard as a bird sounds even more insane than the Joker himself.
Check out the new trailer for The Boy and the Heron in English here:

The Boy and the Heron is about little Mahito (English voice: Luca Padovan), who loses his mother at the time of World War II. His father marries his late wife’s sister, and the family moves to her country house. Mahito is there not only of deep sadness but also plagued by a mysterious gray heron (Pattinson), which opens up a view of a hidden realm.
Miyazaki, who directed such landmark films as Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away, announced his retirement after How the Wind Rises.
