Ahoy, squirts! Quint (http://forums.cgsociety.org/quint@aintitcool.com) here. Hayao Miyazaki is at it again. He just began work at Studio Ghibli on another animated film, following up the smash success of HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE which won everything in the world and made a mountain of money. As it should have. There's no other news. No title is known, nothing is known about the story. The only other tidbit out there is that it's slated for a Summer 2008 release (http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=upsell_article&articleID=VR1117951125&categoryID=13&cs=1). But any news of Miyazaki working again is good news. The man is the best at what he does, that's for damn sure.

It was cool to hear this. I bet at some point he will say this is his last film before he retires, but I think he says that every time.

If you want any more, of the so far very little, information, I would check out nausicaa.net (http://www.nausicaa.net), or if you can read Japanese, check out the production diaries at the Ghibli site (http://www.ghibli.jp/15diary/).

Coincidentaly, I just watched Howls Moving Castle. Im not sure how the book's author felt about it, but I thought it was a sweet story that fit in perfectly with everything else Miyazaki has done.

Howl's Moving Castle was as beautiful and magical as you would expect from Miyazaki. Everything the man does is genius. I can't wait for his next one - and hope he puts off retirement for as long as possible!

I want him to work with pixar before he retires. I guess it wouldn't really fit with his work ethics though (he storyboards and designs everything himself). So his movies are very much his.

It's called Gedo Senki (Tales from Earthsea).

There's a pretty nice trailer up on youtube:

Tales from Earthsea I believe was not Miyuzaki but studio ghibli under another directors direction.

The trailer doesn't really give me a good feel for the movie, but I love the song in there. It IS Miyazaki and he has yet to disappoint me. I'm sure I'll love it.

There's an interview to the book author in the 2 DVD edition, she was really pleased by the movie and enthusiast about the translation from the book.

Nope that is directed by Miyazaki's son.

Ursula K. Le Guin was originally approached by Miyazaki, who was telling her that he was very interested in her work. However somehow it didn't lead to anything concrete, and when Miyazaki proclaimed his retirement, Earthsea was taken up by Miyazakis son as his first project in his new position. Unfortunately Ursula K. Le Guin was "again" not very much involved and put up a rather mixed impression on her website after having attended a Gedo Senki screening.

Thats good news.

I really hope he returns to classic miyazaki (totoro, laputa, kiki, porco rosso) rather than making another 'magic and fantasy' type film involving witches, spirits and curses.

Call me a conventialist, but I thought mononoke, spirited away and howls were'nt as good as his 80s and 90s films.

I'd say that is pretty conclusive.

But are we all talking about the same movie or is there another one for 2008?

There will be another one for 2008 by Hayao Miyazaki, according to this newsbit:
September 30, 2006 Production on Studio Ghibli's Next Film
According to the production diary (http://www.ghibli.jp/15diary/) of September 26, the storyboards from Miyazaki's next film are watercolors. They're printed with a color copier and distributed to the main staff as special editions. The diary says, "Even we have not seen a colored storyboard very much. Of course it is the first time in Ghibli films".

I didn't copy & paste the whole article, so you'll have to click on the nausicaa.net link to read the rest.

If that IS true and Goro IS trying to get out from under the shadow of his father, he has a funny way of showing it. Perhaps the theory is the Babel principle. Hiyao built the tower that Goro stands under. Goro, rather than building a nice fence to differentiate himself himself from Hiyao decides he'll just build a tower like his fathers, but bigger.

this is great news, I would be interested in seeing him do something, pretty modern, set in a city, I dont know why I want that but i think this man can create magic on screen, people have refered to him as the Japanese Walt Disney, I really dont think that does him justice.

If anyone else is confused, Tales from Earthsea is not what the original post was referring to (I don't think). Earthsee was done by Goro Miyazaki (Hayao's son).

Hayao is now working on another movie.

This is somewhat confirmed by Gedo Senki in short article about Earthsea:
"I am told that Mr Hayao has not retired after all, but is now making another movie. This has increased my disappointment. I hope to put it behind me."

She wasn't too happy with the interpretation of her books, but Earthsea supposedly did very well in Japan. Although we won't be able to see it until 2009.

Gedo Senki is done by Goro Miyazaki, Hayao's son, and has been the source of some major friction between the two.

Gedo Senki's been out in Japan for several months now. I saw it, and didn't really like it. I didn't understand all of it (probably around half -- it was difficult to understand), but the parts I did understand seemed kind of... cliched, for a Ghibli movie. Most of the children and teachers I talk to who have seen it feel the same way. They explained a fair deal of the movie to me, and I still don't really like it.

That said, I hope the next Hayao Miyazaki movie rocks my pants off.

CONVENTIALIST! :D

I personally loved those movies -- but then again, I absolutely love all his films.

I would love to see a new one from Isao Takahata (the director of grave of the fireflies) As much as I generally like the Miyazaki movies , Grave of the Fireflies is hands down the best movie to come out of Studio Ghibli in my opinion.

i wish ghibli had gotten the bid for the nemo movie honestly, that would have been a great ass movie had they done it. found the production pitch somewhere online months ago and it looked really good

as far as another miyazaki film goes....he'll make it, anime viewers will like it, and it'll make a good amount of money. some people regard miyazaki like a japanese disney. i dunno how far i would take that but, he definitely has a unique style of storytelling that alot of people just dont like. then again, as long as he keeps selling tickets, who are they to say that a miyazaki movie is bad?

But he always made fantasy movies, remember "Kiki's delivery service" and "Nausicaš". Anyway I love all his movies, the funny ones as well as the more serious ones.

Check out My Neighbours the Yamadas (Houhokekyo Tonari no Yamada-kun). It came out in 1999 and has an amazing style to it, it's one of my personal favourites of the Ghibli movies. Other movies by Takahata are Only Yesterday (thoughtful and deep movie) and Pom Poko (crazy Racoons... with balls. It's awesome)

From Nausicaa.net...

----
My Neighbour the Yamadas - http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/yamada/
Based on Hisaichi ISHII's comic strip Tonari no Yamada-kun, this film is about the daily lives of the Yamada family: Takashi and Matsuko (the father and mother), Shige (Matsuko's mother), Noboru (the son), Nonoko (the daughter), and Pochi (the family dog). The comic is currently serialized in the Asahi Shinbun (http://www.asahi.com/)

Takahata wanted Yamada-kun to have the art style of watercolor pictures rather than cel pictures. To achieve that, the traditional paint-on-cel techniques were replaced with digital technology, making Yamada-kun the first Ghibli movie to be painted and animated entirely on computers.


-----
Only Yesterday - http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/opp/

Only Yesterday revolves around Taeko, a single woman working a desk job in Tokyo in 1982, taking a vacation in the countryside with the family of her sister in-law. During her vacation, Taeko finds herself looking back at her time as a young schoolgirl growing up in 1966. The film flips back and forth between the two time periods with a lot of nostalgia and beautiful country scenery as Taeko sorts out her flashbacks and tries to make some tough decisions about her future.

----
Pom Poko - http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/pompoko/

In Pom Poko (the Japanese title literally means "Heisei-era Raccoon War Pom Poko"), Tanuki (animals native to Asia which look like raccoons (http://www.nausicaa.net/miyazaki/pompoko/faq.html#tanuki)) living in the forest near a government construction project, are being threatened by the destruction of their habitat. Banding together and seeking help from other tribes of Tanuki, they live up to their traditionally mischievous reputation by changing their shape and trying to sabotage the construction effort.
