January 8 – The Boy and The Heron (from Encore Films/Warner Bros.)
Studio Ghibli’s and Hayao Miyazaki’s award-winning and record-breaking anime film “The Boy and The Heron” is a big fantastical film that follows a boy named Mahito (voiced by Soma Santoki) who enters a magical world with a talking grey heron after finding an abandoned tower in his new town. Yearning for his mother, Mahito ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead where death comes to an end and life finds a new beginning. “The Boy and The Heron” is a semi-autobiographical fantasy about life, death, creation and a tribute to friendship that can only come from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.

Illumination invites you to take flight into the thrill of the unknown with a funny, feathered family vacation like no other in the action-packed new original animated comedy, “Migration” featuring the voices of Awkwafina, Elizabeth Banks, Danny DeVito, Keegan-Michael Key and Kumail Nanjani.

The ensemble cast also includes Sam Rockwell, John Cena, Ariana DeBose, Dua Lipa, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, Sofia Boutella, and Samuel L. Jackson.
