Isao Takhata, 1991) Summary: Born on January 5, 1941 in Tokyo, Hayao Miyazaki is known as the ‘Japanese Disney’, a filmmaker as revered - and as popular - as Walt Disney or Steven Spielberg. Miyazaki, in short, is a true phenomenon in contemporary animation and in world cinema.
Hayao Miyazaki's movies include Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Laputa: Castle In the Sky and My Neighbor Totoro.
Hayao Miyazaki may be the most talented fantasy filmmaker of his generation: not even the finest filmmakers of Hollywood can rival his films when it comes to creating fantasy worlds, and fantastical characters and events. Miyazaki has millions of fans around the world, not least among fellow animators and filmmakers, for whom he is a genius.
What Hayao Miyazaki’s films do is to bring you completely into a fantasy world that is actually instantly recognizable and familiar. It’s as if these fantasy realms have always existed - very much like J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth or Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea (both influences on Miyazaki). The visionary and magical elements are fused with the domestic and familial and social elements , so that it seems completely ordinary and believable that, say, flying machines soar overhead which have flapping wings like an insect, or that little white creatures pop up out of trees.
To write one hit animation movie is amazing, to write seven is remarkable. To write and direct one spectacular animated picture is very impressive, to write and direct seven features is almost unheard-of in the world of contemporary commercial animation.
This new study of Hayao Miyazaki considers all of his films and TV shows (and his manga work). It also includes chapters on Studio Ghibli; on fellow director Isao Takahata; Miyazaki's influences; his contemporaries and colleagues; his characters; his movies' relation to Western animation (including Disney); his unmade films; and his themes and motifs.
The Cinema of Hayao Miyazaki also explores Japanese animation, its production and style, some classics of anime, and digital animation.
Includes quotes by Miyazaki; fans on Miyazaki; and resources.
Fully illustrated. With filmography, bibliography and notes.
