Hayao Miyazaki To Make Debut CG Animation Film

TOKYO — Animation maestro Hayao Miyazaki confirmed that he is directing an animated short for the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. This will be his first animation since completing “The Wind Rises,” a 2013 hit which he said would be his last feature.

The new ten-minute film, starring a hairy caterpillar, will be made in the CG format, a first for the director, and take an estimated three years to complete. Miyazaki did not say whether the film will be shown outside the museum.

Miyazaki spoke to reporters at his studio Higashi Koganei, Tokyo. He dedicated most of his remarks to criticism of the Japanese government under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
