New Hayao Miyazaki film heads Toho line-up
Mark Schilling in Tokyo 17 December 2002 04:05
Three new works by Japanese animation powerhouses head Tohos line-up
Leading the line-up is Howls Moving Castle, the latest film by Hayao
Miyazaki, whose Spirited Away set an all-time Japanese box office record
last year and is being tipped for an Academy Award nomination.
Based on a 1986 childrens novel by Diana Wynne Jones about a girl who
is transformed into an old woman by a wizards spell, the film was
originally set to be directed by Mamoru Hosoda for a summer 2003
A director for Toei Animation, Hosoda was the first outsider chosen to
helm a film for Miyazakis Studio Ghibli, but Hosoda quit the project
several months ago, after failing to come up with a concept satisfactory
to his Studio Ghibli bosses. The film then remained in limbo, until
Miyazaki decided to direct it himself. The official start of production
is February 1, with completion scheduled for the spring of 2004 and
release for the summer of the same year...
