Hayao Miyazaki’s New Film Still Has Years of Animation Left to Complete, Studio Ghibli Boss Toshio Suzuki Says
Posted on Thursday, May 14th, 2020 by Hoai-Tran Bui
Hayao Miyazaki is a notoriously meticulous director. The formerly retired filmmaker oversees every key frame of his films, and has his hands on every part of the animation process. Naturally, that results in a famously slow production for many of the films of the legendary anime director behind Studio Ghibli classics like Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and The Wind Rises. But they’re always worth the wait.
However, Miyazaki fans breathlessly waiting for his new film, How Do You Live?, a coming-of-age drama that brought the filmmaker out of retirement once again, will have to wait a little longer. Studio Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki gave an update on the How Do You Live production, revealing that the upcoming film is still years away from being completed.
