Miyazaki makes a comeback with a new feature film from Studio Ghibli

Studio Ghibli’s co-founder and probably the most familiar face from the famous anime studio Hayao Miyazaki has announced that he is once again making a comeback to do what is supposed to be his last film. It was in a recent interview with the New York Times that he revealed that he will now make an interpretation of the famous book “How do you live?” from 1937.

Miyazaki himself describes the film as a large-scale fantasy where the plot revolves around a 15-year-old boy who for the first time gets to experience Tokyo wandering around the city where he later gets a very overwhelming experience:

“The watching self, the self being watched, and furthermore the self becoming conscious of all this, the self observing itself by itself, from afar, all those various selves overlapped in his heart, and suddenly he began to feel dizzy.”

Hayao Miyazaki may well be considered a legend in the anime and film world in general. He was also, as previously mentioned, co-founded Studio Ghibli in 1985, but has even before that produced numerous films for several decades.
