Goro Miyazaki's 44th Birthday

A belated Happy Birthday to Goro Miyazaki, who turned 44 last Friday, January 21.  He is currently in production as director of Studio Ghibli's next feature, Kokuriko-Zaka Kara, which is currently scheduled for a summer release.  Let's hope that Goro-San has a terrific 2011.

Oh, and if this next movie crashes and burns like Gedo Senki did, you'll be remembered as the guy who killed Studio Ghibli.  So, no pressure at all, Goro-San.  No pressure at all.

Goro's movie Earthsea was fantastic. I love Hayo Miyazaki and I agree with what he said at opening it was a good honest movie. Goro should never listen to such absurd critics. Sure, everything can be better, but if he keeps perfecting his directing capabilities he will leave the world uneased by such beauty. He is an inspiration, an artist, and a wonderful director. I am entirely thrilled and excited to see what he comes out with next. I wish him the best of luck.
