Hayao Miyazaki’s name is one that conjures images of fantastical worlds, mysterious creatures and, above all, joyous stories that find homes in the hearts of viewers of all ages. Miyazaki’s career began in 1963 and in 1985 he co-founded Studio Ghibli, a name that, like his, has become a watchword for some of the 20th century’s very best animation work. 13 films and an academy award later, his legacy is assured. Miyazaki’s animations are visually rich masterpieces that crossed cultural boundaries to become loved and admired worldwide. This week it was announced that the maestro will return to direct at least one more feature.
