    Hayao Miyazaki

    Welcome Back Hayao Miyazaki

    Hats off this week to the Japanese animation legend who just couldn’t stay retired. Hayao Miyazaki, whose anime films for the studio he co-founded in 1985 helped set the standard for animation globally, decided earlier this year to end his 5-year “retirement,” when a film idea that grabbed a hold of him just wouldn’t let go. A welcoming ceremony was held at Studio Ghibli upon Miyazaki’s return to work on the new film, Boro the Caterpillar. The Spirited Away director originally made a short film about the subject for Ghibli’s museum in the city of Mitaka. But he decided it had potential as a feature film and approached the studio about it in August. The decision to green light was, obviously, a no-brainer. We can’t wait.
