Posters For The Two New Ghibli Films For 2013

Studio Ghibli have officially announced their films for 2013, one directed by each of their two keystone directors.

Hayao Miyazaki has adapted his own short manga The Wind Rises, telling the story of World War 2 fighter plane designer, Jiro Hirokoshi. Here’s a poster from the film’s official site, not featuring Hirokoshi but… his daughter? Wife? Sister?

And here’s the first poster for Isao Takahata‘s Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter, from that film’s site.

We’ve heard repeated rumours that these films were coming, but this at last makes it official – and drops the big surprise that the studio will once again release both Miyazaki and Takahata films not only in the same year but the same summer. Indeed, they may even be released as a double bill.

It’s like 1988 and the “Best. Double Bill. Ever” release of My Neighbour Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies all over again.

It isn’t clear from Eiga‘s announcement piece if this actually is a double bill, but I really do think it is.

However, in the West, we’re likely to see them as two different films, and likely at two different times.
