‘Spirited Away doesn’t belong to me,’ says Hayao Miyazaki



Stage variations of in style anime have develop into pretty widespread in Japan over the previous decade, however when the anime being tailored can also be Japan’s second-highest-grossing film of all time, the extent of anticipation is on a complete different degree. So final week a full-scale press occasion was held to unveil the primary in-costume promotional images for the upcoming stage play of Studio Ghibli’s “Spirited Away.”

Representing the anime studio was veteran producer Toshio Suzuki, however not the anime movie’s director, Hayao Miyazaki. That was to be anticipated, as Miyazaki tends to keep away from the highlight at any time when doable, even going as far as making “I won’t attend any press conferences” a required situation for his permission to provide a kabuki play of “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind” some time again.

Suzuki additionally reiterated the religion they’ve within the “Spirited Away” stage play’s director, John Caird. “He and Miyazaki really hit it off,” he says of their conferences whereas the variation was nonetheless within the idea stage, and that “I believe the cast and crew, without question, will be creating a wonderful play for us.”
