and congratulations to #TheBoyAndTheHeron (How Do You Live?),

This is my second collaboration with him after #CastleInTheSky. I am grateful to be able to participate in the English voice cast.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of the English voice cast.

Set in Japan during the war, the fantasy film tells the story of a boy named Mahito, whose mother died in a fire, and his encounter with a blue heron in a village where his mother Hisako’s family lives after evacuating from Tokyo, and his mysterious experience. Hamill voiced the great-uncle of Hisako and Hisako’s sister Natsuko in the English version.

In addition to Hamill, the English version is voiced by “Batman” star Robert Pattinson (Blue Heron/Heron Man), Florence Pugh (Chirico) from “Oppenheimer” and “Platoon” and “Spider-Man” star Willem Defoe (The Old Pelican). In addition, Christian Bale (Katsuichi) and Div Bautista (The Great Parrot) and many other top Hollywood stars appear in the film.

The film was released in the U.S. on December 8, 2011, and grossed approximately 1.86 billion yen at the box office. It was also a big hit in the U.S., ranking first in the U.S. box office over the weekend. This is due in large part to the power of the splendid “voice actors. ……” (source from the movie industry)

In addition to “How Do You Live?”, “My Element”, “Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse”, “Nimona” and “Robot Dreams” were nominated for the Best Animated Feature Film category at the Academy Awards.

How Do You Live?” won the Best Animated Feature Award at the 81st Golden Globe Awards, the prelude to the Academy Awards, as well as the New York Film Critics Circle Award and the Los Angeles Film Critics Circle Award, and is considered a frontrunner for the Academy Award. Hamill’s “blessing” may provide an additional boost. If the film wins, it will be the second time since “Spirited Away” won the same award at the 75th Academy Awards (2003).

In addition, “Godzilla-0.1,” directed by Takashi Yamazaki, is the first Japanese film to be nominated for Best Visual Effects. In addition, Wim Wenders’ “Perfect Days,” for which Koji Yakusho won the Best Actor Award at the Cannes International Film Festival, was nominated for Best International Feature Film, marking the first time in history that three Japanese films have been nominated simultaneously.

The 96th Academy Awards will be announced at the ceremony to be held in Los Angeles on March 10 (March 11 in Japan time), and all eyes will be on who will win the Oscar.
