Hayao Miyazaki came out of retirement to direct more films “in order to live,” his son Goro has revealed.
The legendary Studio Ghibli founder is said to have found retirement “so aimless” (per IndieWire) that “Hayao needed to create something in order to live”.
Hayao Miyazaki had announced his retirement in 2013, but Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki announced in October 2017 that he would be returning to make a new film for his grandson.
“Miyazaki is making the new film for his grandson. It’s his way of saying, ‘Grandpa is moving on to the next world, but he’s leaving behind this film,’” Suzuki said at the time.
