Legendary Animation Director Hayao Miyazaki "May" Direct a New Movie

You may have heard that Studio Ghibli, has been having some financial issues since the Hayao Miyazali retired. It would be incredibly sad if Studio Ghibli ended after all of the amazingly wonderful films they've made. Now, according to veteran Studio Ghibli producer, Toshio Suzuki, Legendary anime director Hayao Miyazaki "may" come out of retirement to "make something again."

Toshio Suzuki explained in a TBS documentary, that Miyazaki had talked to him about making a short film for the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. “This is my guess, but I’m thinking it will be something short.”

Suzuki also appeared on the NHK morning show “Asa Ichi” to clarify his earlier statements about the animation studio saying:
“We’re changing the way we make (animation). We wanted to make a dream company. We thought we would make what suited us and not make what didn’t suit us. We were able to realize (that dream) to some extent and we’re very happy about that. But now we’re at a point where we’ve got to think about what we’ll do next.”

Alexandre Gasulla - not working at Ghibli - edited together the great video below paying tribute to the films that Miyazaki has made during his career, and it reminds us of all the wonderful stories that he has given to the world.
