Studio Ghibli has done a good job at keeping the great animator Hayao Miyazaki's last film closely guarded, even after its release in Japan last month. Until now, all we had seen was a single slightly abstract poster promoting the Boy and the Heron in Japan.

But with an international premier coming up at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, a small handful of images have finally emerged. And the film looks to be just the kind of visually stunning masterpiece we hoped for (see our guide to Disney's 12 principles of animation for tops on mastering the art).
