hayao miyazaki officially out of retirement

Hayao Miyazaki is out of retirement. ‘Cause you can’t keep a talented auteur down, right? I mean. Like. Dude lives for this shit. As long as he lives, I imagine he’s going to be making films.

The Verge:

Hayao Miyazaki is back at it again. After announcing his retirement in 2013 (not for the first time), it was rumored last year that he was working on a new feature film, based on a CG short named Boro the Caterpillar. Now, officials at Studio Ghibli have confirmed it: Miyazaki is working on a new feature.

Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki revealed the news at a pre-Oscars interview for The Red Turtle (which Studio Ghibli co-produced and which is nominated for Best Animated Feature). It was reported by a number of sources including a journalist for the Kyodo news agency.
