According to the official website, Studio Ghibli's new short anime movie "Chu-zumo" will be shown at Ghibli Museum from January 3rd to February 28th, 2010. The movie is based on a Japanese folk tale "Nezumi no Sumo (Sumo of Mice)".

Duration: 13 min

Staff
Plan & Scenario: Miyazaki Hayao
Director: Yamashita Akihiko (the character designer of "Zegapain", "Giant Robo")

Synopsis:
Once upon a time, there lived an old man and his wife in a mountain. One night, he found a bunch of mice heading to somewhere. He followed them and saw the mice playing Sumo. The man and his wife happened to know the mice living in their house always lose the matches, and they gave them some foods to support the team.

Man, that means a long wait before the DVD but at least, it's good to hear he's still making movies...

13 minutes isn't so bad for a movie, CENCOROLL was only 25 minutes and it was good.

But then again, Miyazaki is a person who writes long, twisty stories, can he really get his story told in 13 minutes without it failing epicly?

Well, the story is already there, he doesn't really need to write anything. He only needs to adapt it to fit the movie.

Yes, but can he do it in a way that fits into 13 minutes? Remember, he's a very word and metaphor reliant story teller.

Miyazaki has made numerous short films in the past, all of which are only viewable in the Ghibli Museum.

13 mins is pretty short, but hopefully it's good.

And? :) Is there something special about it?

This particular story is well known, and there's also references to it in other japanese stories. I think there was one in some Akutagawa's novel, when a person sees a dream about mice doing sumo. Or maybe it wasn't Akutagawa, but some other writer...

It'll be interesting to see if Miyazaki can do what he usually does in 13 min.

I've been to the ghibli museum, it's totally different, the animation display was amazing o_O

they have there own mini cinema that they show the short anime's on, and the funny thing is, your ticket to the museum is a actual film cel strip of their latest movie and if you want to see this short animation, they have to stamp your ticket like old style cinema offices xD fantastic stuff !

(not to mention the museum is totally out in the middle of nowhere ! haha ! fun stuff :)

this makes me "sad face" seeing that you can only see it at the Ghibli Museum like the short film Mei to Konekobasu which is the small after story of My Neighbor Totoro which I will try and see when I go there this year. I envy anyone who has been able to go there :(

i guess they won't release it on DVD since it was made for Ghibli Museum (like they didn't for Mei to Konekobasu or other that matter).
