Ghibli works are familiar to Japanese people, and I think there are no strangers.
I would like to introduce what kind of announcement there was this time.

Hayao Miyazaki’s Upbringing
Born in Tokyo as the second son of miyazaki aviation kogaku, a member of the board of the clan management and employs thousands of people.
He was evacuated to Utsunomiya in his early childhood and lived until the third grade of elementary school.In 1950, he moved to Nagafuku-cho, Suginami-ku, Tokyo, when he was in the fourth year of elementary school.
When I was a child, I was weak and weak in exercise, but i was by far the best at painting.
He was an avid reader and a comic boy.
I was impressed by the “Hakujaden” i watched when I was in the third year of Toyotama High School, and i became interested in animation.
Active in the world of anime
In 1935, he went on to Gakushuin University and joined the Children’s Literature Circle (Children’s Culture Research Group).
After deciding to move on to the world of animation, he joined Toei Video as an animator after graduating from Gakushuin University, where he worked on videos and other items.
Established Studio Ghibli
In 1985, he established Studio Ghibli with the investment of Tokuma Shoten, and became the foundation for his subsequent production.
He produced “Laputa castle in the sky” in 1986 and “My Neighbor Totoro” in 1988.
In 1989, “Kiki’s Delivery Service” became the top box office hit of the year.
In 1997, “Princess Mononoke” was a big hit because of the biggest production cost in Ghibli history, and miyazaki’s theory of retiring from the director.
In 2001, “The Hidden Spirit of A Thousand And Chihiro” re-entered the box office record with 23.5 million spectators and box office revenue of 30.8 billion yen, making it the number one new record in The History of Film in Japan.
In 2004, Howl’s Moving Castle was the second largest hit in the history of Japanese cinema with 1.1 million visitors and 1.48 billion yen at the box office.
In 2013, he released an animated film based on his own “Futate No Saku-no-Hayao’s Manga”.
After retiring as a feature director
On November 13, 2016, he withdrew his retirement from his retirement in the program of the special program “The Never-Ending Person Hayao Miyazaki”, which was broadcast on NHK.
Hayao Miyazaki’s new work is decided
Hayao Miyazaki, who had declared his retirement, returned to work and a new work was made.
It has become a hot topic that there are two works that Mr. Miyazaki works on.
Arya and the Witch
This feature animation will be broadcast on NHK General from this winter.
It will be ghibli’s first full-length 3DCG production, and it is planned by Hayao Miyazaki and directed by his eldest son, Goro.
The original work is the work of the same name by the writer Diana Wynne Jones.
Speaking of Diana Wyn Jones, she is also famous as the author of Howl’s moving castle.
How do you live?
It turns out that there is another new work.
This work is produced over the most time than ever, and it seems to be made at the highest production cost ever.
He has 60 animators working on the project, but he says he can only do it for a minute in a month.
Production started in 2017 and is now 36 minutes complete, but it’s still a long way off, so it seems to be aiming for completion in three years.
I was happy to talk about the new work, but it seems i still have to wait three years.
Let’s wait carefully.
Hayao Miyazaki’s Summary
How did you like it?
If you are japanese, i think there are many people who are fans of Ghibli works.
From such a fan, I think that this new information was very glad.
Among fans, there is a pattern that the work after the retirement withdrawal is a godwork, i can expect to see if the work of this presentation is after the withdrawal of retirement.
There is still a long way to go in how you will live as a movie version, but i would like to look forward to arya and the witch first.
