Here Are The Next Two Studio Ghibli Anime

Studio Ghibli is releasing two films in Japan in mid 2013: Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) and Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of Princess Kaguya).

Hayao Miyazaki (My neighbour Totoro, will direct Kaze Tachinu, while Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies) will helm Kaguya-hime no Monogatari, Eiga reports (via tsk06 and ANN).

As previously mentioned, Kaze Tachinu is centered around Jiro Horikoshi, the designer of the World War II fighter plane, the Mitsubishi A6M Zero.

Kaguya-hime Monogatari, on the other hand, is an anime retelling of the famous Japanese folktale about a princess who discovers a baby inside a bamboo plant.

Both films open next year at cinemas across Japan. Check out their posters below.

    After a couple recent misses (Arriety.... yeesh) I did enjoy Poppy on the Hill. I hope the next two are enjoyable.

      Personally I enjoyed Arrietty. No it wasn't terribly exciting, but it was pleasant and personal, which is enough for some.

        Fucking loved Arrietty, it was absolutely gorgeous. Those who didn't like it probably just have ADHD.

    "Kaguya-hime Monogatari, on the other hand, is an anime retelling of the famous Japanese folktale about a princess who discovers a baby inside a bamboo plant."

    WTH? A woodcutter discovers a baby inside a bamboo tree. The baby IS Kaguya-hime. The princess did not discover the baby, the baby IS the princess.

      No shit sherlock.
