Way back in 2013, the Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki announced to the world that he would be retiring. This means that he will not be making full-length movies anymore and would only concentrate on minor projects.

Since then, Miyazaki worked on other minor projects such as the short film named Kemushi no Boro. However, it turns out that the Oscar-winning artist isn?t done with the film industry yet. According to Miyazaki, he will be coming out of retirement soon to make one last movie.

Hayao Miyazaki: ?The Man Who Is Not Done?

The news of his return landed him in a Japanese TV special broadcast over the weekend. Titled Hayao Miyazaki: The Man Who Is Not Done, he revealed that he was dissatisfied with the 12-minute CG short film Kemushi no Boro.

Thus, he wants to turn it into a full-length movie. While the special broadcast didn?t reveal Miyazaki earning the green light from the producers, he is seen beginning his work on its animation. At present time, official confirmation is yet to be announced.

However, if a man of his caliber wants to make a film, there?s a high chance that he would get it. On the other hand, Miyazaki?s Kemushi no Boro was originally created for the Ghibli Museum, which debuted in Tokyo back in 2011.

The Ghibli Museum showcases the artifacts from Studio Ghibli which is also co-founded by Miyazaki. Furthermore, the studio includes many films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Howl?s Moving Castle, and Castle in the Sky

Hayao Miyazaki: What?s Kemushi no Boro All About?

At the present time, there isn?t a lot of information regarding Kemushi no Boro. Fortunately, its creator shed some light regarding its general concept. In the special, Miyazaki mentioned that it was about a tiny and hairy caterpillar.

In addition, he stated that he might be 80 years old by the time it?s done, as he is currently 75. Furthermore, Hayao Miyazaki has been working on the film for 20 years now.

That being said, the film should arrive before 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. At the present time, it appears that Hayao Miyazaki is still far from finishing the movie. However, fans should expect a trailer or even a teaser soon as 2020 comes near.
