Hayao Miyazaki Retires From Making Feature-Length Films

By Will Ashton


On the heels of releasing his newest movie, The Wind Rises— which just played at the Venice Film Festival—it was announced that director Hayao Miyazaki will be retiring from making feature-length films.

Koji Hoshino, president of Studio Ghibli, made the announcement at a press conference this morning. While he did state that he will not be making feature-length films anymore, there is reason to believe that he can continue making short films, or just step back and remain a writer and producer solely.

No reasons have been directly stated as to why he has decided to stop making films. Hoshino added that Miyazaki will be holding a briefing in Tokyo soon which will explain further details.
