Hayao Miyazaki’s New Film Will Be A Nostalgic Action-Adventure Story

Hayao Miyazaki

During an advance preview of the second part of the ‘How Do You Live? Exhibition’ at the Ghibli Museum on May 24, 2024, Goro Miyazaki revealed that Hayao Miyazaki is working on a new project that could become his next film.

According to Goro Miyazaki, his father began creating panorama boxes based on his past works as a way to pass the time. However, Goro felt that constantly revisiting past works could become monotonous for Hayao Miyazaki.

Encouraging him to pursue new projects, Goro suggested, “Why don’t you create something for your next film?

And that’s what he’s working on now,” Goro revealed. “Whether it will actually become his next film, I don’t know, but it’s a nostalgic action-adventure story, and I’m looking forward to it.

Note: The original Japanese phrase used by Goro Miyazaki is 冒険活劇風 (bouken katsugeki-fu) which translates to – “in the style of an adventure movie/film”. However, it also may be used to describe an action adventure film in a broader sense.

Previously, Toshio Suzuki had revealed that Miyazaki’s The Boy And The Heron will not be his swan song, and that he is currently working on a new film.

Hayao Miyazaki is a Japanese animator, filmmaker, and manga artist. A founder of Studio Ghibli, he has attained international acclaim as a masterful storyteller and creator of Japanese animated feature films, and is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished filmmakers in the history of animation.

Some of his notable works includes Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Ponyo, among others.

At the 77th Cannes International Film Festival, Goro Miyazaki revealed Miyazaki regarded every animator around him as a rival.

In addition to discussing his father’s competitive spirit, Goro Miyazaki also addressed the future of Studio Ghibli, where he jokingly stated that it’ll be determined once Hayao Miyazaki and producer Toshio Suzuki are no longer around.
