Liz and the Blue Bird is the latest film by director Naoko Yamada from Kyoto Animation, with the main staff of her critically-acclaimed film A Silent Voice. As a spin-off feature film of the ‘Sound! Euphonium’ series based on Ayano Takeda’s bestselling novel, Liz and the Blue Bird revolves around Mizore and Nozomi, two best friends in their final year of high school. With Mizore on the oboe and Nozomi on the flute, as members of the school’s brass band club, they spend their time happily together — until the club begins to practice songs inspired by the fairy tale Liz und ein Blauer Vogel (Liz and the Blue Bird).
