What’s Next on the Ghibli Storyboard?
Less than three years after Miyazaki Hayao announced that The Wind Rises (2013) would be his last feature animated film, the legendary director and animator is quietly at work on a new project. Studio Ghibli producer and chairman Suzuki Toshio, Miyazaki’s longtime collaborator, offers a tantalizing glimpse of the studio’s near- and long-term future as it grapples with the challenges of a new era. In the meantime, fans will have ample opportunity this summer to immerse themselves in the world of Studio Ghibli with the opening of the Ghibli Expo in Tokyo and a special exhibit, All Aboard! The Cat Bus to the Ghibli Forest, at the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka.
