Studio Ghibli’s Next Project to Be From New Director
Studio Ghibli’s Toshio Suzuki has confirmed that his studio’s next project will be from a new director; details are to be announced in December. This comes after an announcement on the official Ghibli blog in July that the studio’s next theatrical feature is scheduled to be released in 2010.
Suzuki has also said that Hayao Miyazaki’s next film is “proceeding as expected” and may open in four years. It was confirmed last year that other established directors at Ghibli, Isao Takahata and Goro Miyazaki, also have feature films in development; the same year the studio’s president Koji Hoshino discussed the possibility of a new director being found either amongst Ghibli’s animators or from outside the studio.
