Title of Hayao Miyazaki’s New Movie Announced
On October 28th, 2017, the movie director, Hayao Miyazaki, announced that the title of his new animated film will be 君たちはどう生きるか, kimi tachi wa dou ikiruka which roughly translates to how are you going to live? It is the title of a novel written by Genzaburo Yoshino in 1937. It does not mean that the movie is based on this novel, but Miyazaki named the film with this title because the book has a significant meaning to the leading character of the film. Miyazaki announced this at an event at Waseda University celebrating the opening of the Soseki Yamafusa Memorial Museum in the Shinjuku ward. Miyazaki announced once that he would retire after making Wind Rises in 2013. However, in May this year, he announced that he would make another film. It will take a couple of years for him to complete the production of the movie.
