The celebrated anime director has announced he is ready to step out from retirement to turn his 20-year project into a full-length animated feature.
Miyazaki announced his retirement three years ago and has since been working on short film Kemushi no Boro (or Boro the Caterpillar).
Miyazaki was reported to be unhappy with how the short turned out and has proposed expanding it into a feature.
Miyazaki said the film could take up to five years to make, which means he’d be around 80 years old by the time it is completed.
Film director gained prominence after release of features Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo.
