After completing an Oscar qualifying run last week, Hayao Miyazaki's final animated film The Wind Rises won't hit theaters again until February. And while the film was presented with the original Japanese voiceover and English subtitles for its awards run, audiences will be able to choose whether they want the subtitled film or a version with the voices dubbed by English-speaking actors. And while the first trailer for the United States release of the film has just surfaced, we still don't know who will lend their voices to the film, which means this trailer is devoid of dialogue, relying on beautiful visuals and one of the film's songs for sound. At the very least, the visuals alone are reason enough to get excited for this movie. Watch below!
Here's the first full US trailer for Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises originally from Deadline:
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 in the film which The Toho Company already released this past summer in Japan. Disney gives The Wind Rises a limited release in the US starting February 21st, 2014, expanding a week after, in addition to the awards qualifying run in New York and Los Angeles from November 8th-14th.
Was sorto expecting it to be bad for some reason, but no, it's got my interest.

I had no idea this had a limited run in the states! Oh well. I guess I'll have to catch it next year.

I thought it was really good. But I really wanted another fantasy piece. I hope he comes back one more time.
