Hayao Miyazaki may return, says Studio Ghibli’s Toshio Suzuki

Hayao Miyazaki, the iconic Japanese anime creator “may make something again,” said Toshio Suzuki, the veteran Studio Ghibli producer whose remarks on a Sunday TBS documentary stirred up speculation about the studio’s demise.

“This is my guess, but I’m thinking it will be something short.” He explained that Miyazaki had talked to him about making a short film for the Ghibli Musuem in Mitaka, Tokyo.

Suzuki was appearing Thursday on the NHK morning show “Asa Ichi” to clarify his earlier statements about the 30 year old company.

“We’re changing the way we make (animation),” Suzuki said, without getting into specifics. “We wanted to make a dream company. We thought we would make what suited us and not make what didn’t suit us. We were able to realize (that dream) to some extent and we’re very happy about that. But now we’re at a point where we’ve got to think about what we’ll do next.” 

In the TBS documentary Suzuki talked about Ghibli taking a hiatus from production to assess its future direction following the September 2013 retirement of Miyazaki, long the studio’s biggest hitmaker. His remarks, mistranslated by a blogger, started a storm of Internet chatter about the imminent end of Japan’s most successful feature animation studio.
