Hayao Miyazaki Working On Autobiographical Film, Full Trailer For Next Ghibli Picture, Up On Poppy Hill

Hayao Miyazaki, seemingly the most beloved of all anime directors, has been working on his next feature film for some time. This week, the first shreds of information were formally announced by Toshio Suzuki, one of the producers at Studio Ghibli – but I do mean shreds. Get ready for some Ghibli news marmalade.

According to Anime News Network:

The new work… is an autobiography. However, Suzuki did not specify if the work is Miyazaki’s own autobiography, or an adaptation of another person’s autobiography.

I would imagine it’s the former, right? It doesn’t seem realistic that “auto” would get carried over once such a biography was being adapted by somebody else.

While you’re here, let’s have a look at the full trailer for Up On Poppy Hill, the next Ghibli picture to see release and, after Tales From Earthsea, the second to be directed by Miyazaki’s son, Goro. I’d be fascinated to see how Miyazaki Senior’s autobiographical film might refer to junior. They don’t always seem to be on the best terms.
