Studio Ghibli’s New Project Discussed on TV

Producer Toshio Suzuki explains some details about Goro Miyazaki’s upcoming movie and everything else that we have been anxiously following these past few months.

The date is January 5, 2012 and the Japanese channel Nihon Eiga Senmon is broadcasting the show called Iwai Shunji x Suzuki Toshio Tokubetsu Taidan. Studio Ghibli’s Toshio Suzuki is sharing some details about the upcoming project taken on by Hayao Miyazaki’s son Goro (From up on Poppy Hill, Tales from Earthsea).

The action will take place in the Japanese history, the Middle Ages to be more precise, and will be placed within the Touhoku region (it was one of the most affected areas by last year’s earthquake and tsunami).

On the other hand, we are expecting a new Hayao Miyazaki project within the next 18 months. According to this living legend’s own words, “it will be on a heavier subject”.

Seems like the studio is gathering all forces lately, because Isao Takahata has also told his followers that he will be coming out with a new work soon.

      1. Well, I know no one would agree, but… At least he tried to be his own self with “Gedo Senki”. It didn’t work, but wasn’t THAT bad. “Kokurikozaka Kara” was…what everyone expected from a Ghibli movie. Seems like he clammed up as an artist and went for safe.
        Not sure if that’s a good thing.
