Release Date Set for Hayao Miyazaki's Latest Movie

"Kaze Tachinu" scheduled for July 20th

Studio Ghibli cofounders Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki were aiming to release their latest anime movies, Kaze Tachinu and Kaguya-hime no Monogatari, on the same date this summer. While Takahata's has been delayed, Miyazaki's has held onto that time frame, and now a specific date has been filled in with a July 20th premiere planned.

 


Miyazaki previously created a Kaze Tachinu manga, and the upcoming movie will work off that and Tatsuo Hori's like-named novel in exploring the life of historic World War II Zero fighter designer Jirō Horikoshi's life.
