The Boy and the Heron Reveals Full Voice Cast

The secretive so-called final Miyazaki film, The Boy and the Heron, has revealed its full cast officially to the public, an unusual move for a film that has already been playing in theaters in Japan since July 14th.

With over 4.39 million tickets sold in the 34 days it has been in theaters through August 16th and number ones across the board for its theme song and soundtrack, it has certainly followed in the footsteps of previous Miyazaki releases. Find the full cast below!

  • Mahito: Santoki Soma
  • Grey Heron: Masaki Suda
  • Kiriko: Kou Shibasaki
  • Himi: Aimyon
  • Natsuko: Yoshino Kimura
  • Shouichi: Takuya Kimura

  • Eriko: Sawako Agawa
  • Warawara: Karen Takizawa
