Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘The Wind Rises’ Gets Limited Release November 8-14, Followed By a Wide Release February 2014

By Will Ashton


About a week ago, legendary director Hayao Miyazaki announced that he would be retiring from making feature-length films. Should that be the case, The Wind Rises will be his last film as a director. Audience members who aren’t currently able to see the film at the TIFF film festival will be able to witness it November 8-14 in New York and Los Angeles, or on February 28, 2014 in its wide release.

In between its Oscar-qualifying run in November and its February 28 wide release, the film will have another limited release run starting February 21, 2014. It’s safe to assume that Disney will be released a dubbed version of the film at this time. The November release of the film, however, will be in its native Japanese language, with English subtitles. The film made its premiere at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month.

The Wind Rises is the director’s first film since 2009’s Ponyo.
