Hayao Miyazaki is retiring for one more movie

Famous filmmaker and Studio Ghibli legend Hayao Miyazaki is retiring to make one last film.

During an interview with New York Times, the 80-year-old Japanese filmmaker reaffirmed that he wants to make one more film – a feature film project called How do you live?

When asked why he was making another film, Miyazaki replied, “Because I wanted to.”

Miyazaki had originally announced his retirement back in 2013, but later made a short film for the Ghibli Museum entitled Earwig and the Witch with his son, Goro Miyazaki. Then, in 2018, Miyazaki announced that he would be coming out of retirement once again.

“[He] needed to create something to live, basically, ”Goro said of his father’s return to film production.

Although the details of his upcoming feature film are sparse, How Do You Live? will be based on a 1937 novel by Genzaburo Yoshino. Studio Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki described the film as “large-scale fantasy”.

The only other detail Suzuki will share is that he sees himself in one of the film’s characters, who is not human.

The 1937 novel How Do You Live? tells the story of 15-year-old Junichi Honda after the death of his father. The young boy, known by his nickname Koperu (after the astronomer Copernicus), lives with his uncle and experiences that he lives very differently – the book deals with perspective, the structure of society and how Koperu looks at how he fits in.

The book ends with the narrator asking the question, “How do you live?”

Although how do you live? has been in the works since 2018, this latest interview offers more of a statement of intent – it’s coming. Exactly when is there to be seen. But the studio has previously said it hopes the film completed within the next three years.

Asked how he would answer the question “How do you live?” Miyazaki replied, “I’m making this movie because I have not answered.”

But will this really be Miyazaki’s last film?

“In the West, we always need to know how things end,” Suzuki said. “With Ghibli, the last scene is often a mystery.”
