Next Studio Ghibli Movie To Be Directed By Arrietty’s Hiromasa Yonebayashi, May Be Sequel To Porco Rosso

porco rossoThe first details of Studio Ghibli’s 2014 film have come to light in a feature at Asahi, as pointed out by Crunchy Roll. Not much to go on, really – just word that it’s going to be directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, the director of 2010’s delightful The Secret World of Arrietty, and produced by Yoshiaki Nishimura, producer of Isao Takahata‘s upcoming Kaguya-hime No Monogatari, or The Story of the Bamboo Cutter.

But it’s very possible that this film will be a sequel to Porco Rosso. I’ve seen that film mentioned a few times, with Hayao Miyazaki referring to it as The Last Sortie, saying it will involved the Spanish Civil War and The Guardian linking the project to Yonebayashi back in 2011.

I’m sure more clarification will only be a few months away, with much media attention sure to be focused on Takahata’s film when it comes along in November.

Ghibli’s From Up On Poppy Hill is released on Blu-ray and DVD in the UK tomorrow. It’s jolly good. I would have shared my interview with director Goro Miyazaki already but, as you may have guessed from lower than normal posting rates, I’ve not been well. It’s coming, though, so stay tuned.
