Hayao Miyazaki is not going to be at home. The director and responsible for the creation of jewels such as 'The Princess Mononoke' (1997) or 'The Journey of Hihiro' (2001) announced in 2013 that he was retiring ( once again ) definitely from the world of cinema, but it seems that it finally seems Which will not be so.
Rumors about his return to management came a few months ago, when Miyazaki, not content with the result of a short film for the Ghibli Museum in Japan, decided to make it into film. The project seems to be already becoming reality.
Miyazaki and the eternal non-retired
The short film in question is titled 'Kamushi no Boro' ('The Boro caterpillar'), and as our Blog Blog comrades tell us, "tells the story of a small, hairy caterpillar, so small that it can be easily crushed between the fingers ". The really novel thing of the story is that apparently the animation will be done completely by computer.
The veteran director turned 76 last January, and according to his own estimates the film would be ready in 2019. Apparently the studio seemed to be reluctant about production, but Miyazaki has managed to take the project forward.
In a previous Oscars interview with Toshio Suzuki, producer at Ghibli Studios, he confirmed that Miyazaki is working on a feature film. At this rate it will be Miyazaki's penultimate, probably.
