‘The Boy and the Heron’ has been creating history since its release. The anime film recently made a new record by winning the Best Animated Film award against some serious competition.

Now, the film has received a stunning music video, and fans are cherishing this fantastic creation.

Kenshi Yonezu’s official YouTube channel began streaming a music video for Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘The Boy and the Heron’ featuring Yonezu’s “Chikyūgi” theme song.

The video includes an English translation of the lyrics in subtitles. Keiichi Itagaki, who has been producing trailers for Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli since 1984, has created the music video.

Kenshi Yonezu has been known for creating masterpieces like ‘Lemon,’ ‘Blue and Gray,’ and ‘Flamingo’. And the lyrical genius has created another statement with ‘Spinning Globe.’

While Miyazaki makes us experience beautiful emotions through his art and direction, Yonezu does the same with his voice and lyrics. His ‘Spinning Globe’ captured the spirit of ‘The Boy and The Heron,’ and fans were overwhelmed by emotions.

Many of the fans were delighted and returned to the theatres to experience the grandeur of this story and the music. In a world of mediocrity, the collaboration of Yonezu and Miyazaki made us feel the magnificence of good storytelling.
