A Glimpse At Hayao Miyazaki's Upcoming "The Wind Is Rising"

Four posters to be displayed in Japanese theaters this May

Kaze Tachinu (The Wind is Rising), the first anime movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki since 2008's Ponyo, opens in Japanese theaters on July 20th, and the promotional push is just starting to pick up. Four posters will be displayed in theaters starting in May. Repeating the final statement of the Nausicaa manga, their tag line will be "we must live on."


Meanwhile, a few shots of the movie have premiere on Japanese morning TV.




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.





There'a also already been a fan-figure recreation of the film's poster.
