"Evangelion" Creator Voiced Character Spotlighted on Poster for Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises"
Four posters to be displayed in theaters starting in 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, with a series of four posters displayed in theaters starting in May.
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. Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno voices Horikoshi in the anime.
