Four Gorgeous Posters for Miyazaki's Newest Film 'The Wind Rises'
The Wind Rises. I love that title. While we still have a few years until this new Studio Ghibli film hits US theaters, it's landing in Japanese theaters this July. Which means marketing is kicking in over in Japan, and a series of gorgeous new very wide banners/billboards have debuted for the film. Hayao Miyazaki's newest feature The Wind Rises is a look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II. We've seen bits of concept art before, but these banners show not only the main character but the incredibly beautiful landscapes and airplanes Miyazaki has created for the animated film.
Here are the four new The Wind Rises posters, officially debuted by @ghibli_intl on Twitter this weekend.
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!" I'm very excited to see it.
