Studio Ghibli sets next animated feature

Hayao Miyazaki's son Goro will direct 'Kokuriko'

Studio Ghibli, the toon house that Hayao Miyazaki built, has announced its new toon feature.

“Kokuriko-zaka kara” (unofficial English title: “From Kokuriko Slope”) will be helmed by Miyazaki’s son Goro, with release skedded for next summer.

Based on an eponymous 1980 comic by Chizuru Takahashi and Tetsuro Sayama, toon is set in 1963, just before the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. Story centers on the struggle of Yokohama teens to save an old student clubhouse at their high school from the wrecking ball.

The elder Miyazaki is planning and scripting the pic in collaboration with Keiko Niwa, while long-time Miyazaki associate Toshio Suzuki is producing.

Goro Miyazaki helmed “Tales From Earthsea,” a fantasy based on the book series by Ursula K. Le Guin that earned $92 million at the Japanese B.O. in 2006.
