HBO Max keeps ‘The Boy and the Heron’, but it is a deal made in the USA

At the end of 2019 we learned that the American distributor GKids had reached an agreement with the Japanese company Ghibli to offer its entire catalog through the video on demand service of maximum HBOwhich is already known only as Max in many territories, soon also in Spain, and will soon add The Boy and the Heron to its list of titles, which has just won the Oscar for Best Animated Film.

“Our subscribers are always looking for unique stories and we are happy to continue offering these award-winning and critically acclaimed films and add The boy and the heron to our offer of deep, rich content on Max,” Elizabeth Bannan Atcheson, vice president of content acquisitions at Warner Bros. Discovery, said in a statement.

The problem? The agreement is only extensible to the United Statesso on our borders still we don’t know where we will be able to see the Academy Award winner, much less when.

HBO Max, the Warner Bros. Discovery platform, does not currently have any of the films from the studio created by Hayao Miyazaki in its catalog, in fact its offer in terms of anime is really poor, and that on the other side of the pond it is she who keeps the broadcast rights means that, at least for Now, there is nothing clear in our country.

Netflix, the favorite

In Spain, all eyes are on and netflixthe streaming service that currently has an agreement that allows it broadcast almost all of Ghibli’s work on your platform. There are only a few projects that we cannot see on the platform, such as the animated short Grogu and the sootsavailable on Disney+, and The fireflies’s gravePossibly the saddest and most realistic film from the Japanese studio that we can see on Movistar+.

The boy and the heron

Released in theaters on October 27, 2023 in our country, The boy and the heron is about a young man named Mahito who longs for his mother and ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead. There, death comes to an end and life finds a new beginning. A semi-autobiographical fantasy about life, death and creation, in homage to friendship, from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.
