Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki Comes Out of Retirement for One Last Film
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.
