The Wind Rises Trailer

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.

Man, this movie's looking fantastic. As expected from the masters at Ghibli. Can't wait for this and Takahata's film as well.

Could you imagine what his films would look like if a well done live action versions were created? Box office would implode lol. Hayao Miyazaki is a visionary of the highest level, can`t wait.

Maybe it can be found in Takahata's latest film The Tale of Princess Kaguya. Kinda irony, huh? Well, The Wind Rises itself is more like an autobiography movie but that doesn't mean it's bad.

By the way, here is reference taken from one of the site ( "As noted by Ghibli Blog, like many of Miyazaki’s films Kaze Tachinu is an interesting amalgam of personal statement and adapted biography. There is, however, one significant break from the bulk of his wildly imaginative filmography. Following the 3/11 trip disaster that left much of Tohoku in ruins, Miyazaki publicly declared that Studio Ghibli would shun fantasy story lines in favor of more realistic stories that address issues facing us today. Kaze Tachinu, which incorporates a scene from the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, is the first official step in that direction."

Beautiful. Reminds me a bit of "Howl's Moving Castle" 🙂

I really try to like this guys movies but something must be lost in the translation because I just can't do it.

I'm really quite sorry to hear that. I actually feel bad for you. It must be terrible to be unable to enjoy such fantastic films.

The only Ghibli animation I will always love to bits is (Laputa:) Castle in the Sky. It was the first Japanese animated movie I'd seen after years of Saturday morning and afternoon cartoons, and I still remember watching it on TV in the late 1980s thinking how amazing and beautiful it was.

I can't wait for the next movie, I hear it's a loving tribute to Mikhail Kalashnikov. With a strong anti-war message, of course, as befits a Miyazaki film.
