Published Nov 14, 2016From theme parks to realistic edits, we love the work of Studio Ghibli so much that we desperately wish it was real life. While it may be a while before we get to cuddle up to a real-life Totoro, however, there is some good news — the studio's founder Hayao Miyazaki is coming out of retirement for one last film.
As Anime News Network reports, a recent television special explored Miyazaki's post-retirement restlessness. Fittingly called The Man Is Not Done, the special revealed that Miyazaki has a final film on the way.
The director has spent the last three years working on a short film called Kemushi no Boro (or, in English, Boro the Caterpillar). The film follows a caterpillar that's so small, it could be "easily squished between your fingers."
Rather than complete it as a short film, Miyazaki has decided to turn the short into a feature-length project. He's started storyboarding the project, and hopes to have it ready for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
