>Hayao Miyazaki Animates New Short for Ghibli Museum

Producer Toshio Suzuki revealed on his Ghibli Asemamire radio program this weekend that Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki is animating a 10-minute short without dialogue for the Ghibli Museum. Miyazaki is working on the key animation drawings himself since other key animators are working on Ghibli’s next feature film, this summer’s Karigurashi no Arrietty by Hiromasa Yonebayashi. Miyazaki has been planning the Karigurashi no Arrietty (The Borrower Arrietty) film since July of 2008, but as previously revealed by Suzuki, Miyazaki is not directing the next feature film.

Miyazaki also planned and scripted “Chū-Zumō,” a 13-minute anime short about sumo-wrestling mice that is screening at the museum from January 3 until February 28. Suzuki had said in 2008 that Miyazaki’s next projects after Ponyo would be anime shorts for the museum, and he previously directed the musum’s “Mei to Konekobasu” short, an unofficial continuation of the 1988 film classic, My Neighbor Totoro.
