It looks like Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki may be coming out of retirement once again, as Anime News Network is reporting that the legendary animator is working on a feature length film entitled Kemushi no Boro (Boro the Caterpillar).
The man behind such classic anime features as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke announced his latest retirement back in 2013 following the release of The Wind Rises, but revealed that he planned to continue making short films to be shown at Japan’s Ghibli Museum.
Last summer it was revealed that Miyazaki was working on a CG animated short, which turned out to be the aforementioned Boro the Caterpillar. However, it seems he’s dissatisfied with the project as a short, and has started working on storyboards for a feature version, despite the project not yet receiving an official green light. He is aiming to have the project finished by 2019 ahead of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
