The Wind Rises

  Released in theatres: November 8th, 2013


The Wind Rises is the 11th animated theatrical film directed by Hayao Miyazaki at Studio Ghibli. Based on Miyazaki’s own manga and the 1937 short novel of the same name by Tatsuo Hori, this is the story of Jirō Horikoshi, the aircraft engineer most remembered for his design work on the Mitsubishi A6M Reisen “Zero”, Japan’s famous World War II fighter aircraft. During the WWII years, the[…]Miyazaki family business manufactured aircraft parts, including the windshields and rudders used on the Zero.  Miyazaki has announced that this will be his last feature film (for real this time), as he feels at his age he can no longer make a film in a timely manner.
