There's not long to go before Hayao Miyazaki's next Ghibli film hits cinemas outside of Japan, and we've been treated to yet another teaser. This time, it's actually rather revelatory. The official music video for The Boy and the Heron gives us a sneak peek of the movie's score and features exclusive snippets from the film, which up until now has remained fairly mysterious. 

The new score, composed by Kenshi Yonezu, is a perfect blend of traditional Ghibli-style instrumentals with a modern musical twist – truly immersing you in Miyazaki's magical world.
