Toshio Suzuki has announced at an event in the US on Thursday that a new feature length movie by Hayao Miyazaki is in production. Hayao announced that he would retire from making feature-length movies in September 2013.

Hayao was a director for Studio Ghibli until 2013, where Kaze Tachinu was his final feature-length movie. He has been creating short movies for the Ghibli Museum after retirement. He is currently working on the short Kemushi no Boro, but it will not be completed soon.

It is disgusting the amount of disrespect kids show to the elderly these days. This man is the single biggest name in anime history. He is a multi-millionaire. He is in his 80’s. He doesn’t need to make more money or fame. He can comfortably retire whenever he wants.

This is a man of passion. I am sure many insisted he comes out of retirement, & most were glad. Miazaki Hayao is a legend. Learn some respect.

I didn't have any doubt this would happen, wasn't a huge fan of Kaze Tachinu though.

I feel like we do this every five years or so. Like the bum friend who always sleeps in your couch except he's a visionary director and we're always glad when he crashes at our (Ghibli/Disney's) place.

Maybe he'll take this opportunity to train up some new blood for Ghibli o:

I knew it!! 'retirement = taking a break' in Miyazaki's head.

Here's wondering if he was allowed to visualize what Kaze Tachinu was actually supposed to be.

Wow...What a surprise, he's come back.

The dude has retired, what, six times now?

Oh nice. I'm hoping he can make another classic.

I doubt he'll retire any time soon honestly.

Was expecting this, but still good. Looking forward to see the new film!

He has officially un-retired. Which is good.

I hope he can enable a Studio Ghibli revival.

And in the other news the true saviour or anime will also announce his comeback for a new anime film. Coincidence? I think not.

Please, God no. Kaze Tachinu was the worst 2 hours of my life.

It would be way better if the whole romantic plot was cut off and they focused on the right points.

After seeing what sorry state the anime world is in, Miyazaki decided to return to the dance floor one last time to show the schoolboys how it's done.
