The writer-director officially retired in 2013 after completing his anti-war drama 'The Wind Rises'
Studio Ghibli legend Hayao Miyazaki made headlines this week by confirming his much-rumoured return from retirement to make one last film "How Do You Live."
The writer-director officially retired in 2013 after completing his anti-war drama "The Wind Rises."
Based on a 1937 book of the same name by Japanese writer Yoshino Genzaburō, Miyazaki's new film will revolve around a 15-year-old fatherless boy from Tokyo who is “small for his age and fond of mischief." The animator described it as an “epic fantasy tale.”
In an exclusive interview with New York Times T Magazine, Miyazaki confirmed his return and discussed the future of animation films.
"I would say that well after trying 3D CGI here at Studio Ghibli, it was a plus that we found out that we were capable of doing it. When you look at sole animation and 3D animation, obviously they’re two different art forms,” he explained.
“However, there are also a lot of similarities; discovering those similarities was also a plus and has paved the way for future projects….I think we will make both in the future.
