Trailer Available for The Wind Rises, Miyazaki’s Last Film
December 2, 2013

The great animation director Hayao Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo) has announced that his last film before retirement will be The Wind Rises, historical fiction based on the biography of a designer of aircraft used in World War II. The movie, which ran in Japan this past summer, will be released in the U.S. on February 21, 2014, via Disney’s Touchstone Pictures. As expected for a Miyazaki work, it looks gorgeous.

The Wind Rises also had a brief Oscar-qualifying run in the US last month, so it will be interesting to see if it’s nominated for the Academy Award next year.
