Studio Ghibli Officially Announces Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘The Wind is Rising’ and Isao Takahata’s ‘The Tale of Princess Kaguya’ For 2013

Not long ago, domain name registrations all but confirmed that Studio Ghibli will release two films in 2013: The Wind is Rising (Kaze Tachinu) from director Hayao Miyazaki, and The Tale of Princess Kaguya (aka The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, or Kaguya-hime no Monogatari) from Grave of the Fireflies director Isao Takahata. (The two men are also Ghibli’s founders.)
Now those two films are fully confirmed, as Studio Ghibli has formally announced each one, and has specified that they will be released on the same day. That echoes the release in 1988 of My Neighbor Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies, which were released on the same day that year. Not a bad 25th anniversary celebration of that event.
Studio Ghibli also launched official websites to promote the films. With those sites come early art for the movies, which you can see below. Read More »
