Hayao Miyazaki at the Venice Premiere of "Ponyo"

by on September 2, 2008

Directory Hayao Miyazaki was interviewed at the Venice Film Festival at the screening for his latest movie, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (Gake no ue no Ponyo). Miyazaki commented on his insistence on hand-drawn animation vs. the CGI used by his friends at Pixar Animation Studios, how the film was inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Little Mermaid” and his son Goro Miyazaki, and recruiting a new generation of cartoonists for future movies, saying, “When I do my next work I’ll be more than 70, so I think I’ll probably have to get help from a younger generation.”

Ponyo has made more than 10 billion yen in Japan since its debut on July 19, 2008.
