According to Cinema Today, US Media has been reporting that Miyazaki Hayao is developing a sequel to Porco Rosso based on an interview released in Cut magazine September issue. Although Miyazaki did mention the outline of the sequel, he continued "I realized that it wouldn't work. (laugh) It would be fortunate if I had a chance to produce it easily, but that's already a pastime. (no longer a serious work.)"

Miyazaki said he wants to depict a forward-looking boy in his next work. "But I can't assure you anything now. Yet, the protagonist will be a girl again."

Miyazaki will probably never do a sequel to any of his movies, that's clearly not his style nor his wish. I'm sure I wasn't the only one not to believe in the fishy info reported in Cinema Today.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

I remember hearing about this in the radio news last winter. I mean, that MIyazaki was planning a sequel. But they said the sequel would be for the manga the animation was based on, not for the movie itself.

"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

This made me LOL. It gives off this "I really wanted a good boy character for my next film, but, well, the protagonist's a girl, so that's not really gonna work out I guess. Nothing I can really do about it."

Well you might want to consider that Ghibli's next 2 films are based on stories, so if those stories starred a female as the main heroine, maybe he didn't want to change that. In the interview he was probably talking about his next film that would be an original idea.

Wait, seriously?!?! I'm still a bit distrustful even if the source is imdb. Well, if it's for real, then it's the second best anime news I've heard this year (after Natsume Youjinchou 3rd season). ( °٢° )

Oh praise God. First I heard Pixar was going to do Cars 2 and then this. No matter how good Porco Rosso was, I'd much rather him do a new work then revisit an old one.
