First Japanese Teaser Trailer for Hayao Miyazaki's 'The Wind Rises'
It's time! This is for all those die-hard Studio Ghibli nerds who just can't wait to see footage. With a release in Japan in July, Ghibli has started teasing their new movie The Wind Rises, or Kaze tachinu, directed by the legendary Hayao Miyazaki telling the story of Jiro Horikoshi, who designed the Zero Fighter airplane. Over the last few months we've been posting some beautiful promo art, now we get a look at actual footage, only 30 seconds of it but enough to bring a smile to my face. The music, the animation, the sincerity of all of it, another delightful creation from the master of animation Miyazaki. Catch the very short first tease below.
Here's the very first Japanese teaser trailer for Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises, found on YouTube:
Studio Ghibli's next film, with the legendary Hayao Miyazaki at the helm, will be called Kaze Tachinu or The Wind Rises. It's an adaptation of Miyazaki's most recent color comic as well as a novel by Tatsuo Hori, about the man who designed the Zero Fighter airplane which was used in World War II. Hideaki Anno will voice Jiro Horikoshi. The Toho Company has the film set for release on July 20th in Japan, but we're not sure about any US plans just yet. Stay tuned. For those interested, follow the @ghibli_intl account for additional updates. In one of their recent tweets, they state: "the Studio Ghibli Int'l Team is hard at work to bring you #TheWindRises as soon as possible after the Japan opening on July 20!" It looks quite wonderful.
