Anyway, just to bring everyone up to speed, the next Ghibli feature will see the long-awaited return of Isao Takahata. Specific details of his project are still under wraps, but all should be revealed near the end of the year, if tradition holds. Takahata's last feature film was My Neighbors the Yamadas in 1999. His only animation after that was the 60-second short on Winter Days in 2003. It's been a long wait for the world's greatest film director.
