Anime Legend Hayao Miyazaki Is Coming Out of Retirement

13 November 2016 4:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Pixar is pretty much on the top of most people's list when it comes to animation studios, but for a great many others, Studio Ghibli is as good as it gets. The Japanese animation house was started by anime legend Hayao Miyazaki more than 30 years ago, who made some of the greatest animated movies of all time during his run with Studio Ghibli. Now, just three years after announcing his retirement from feature filmmaking, the legend is returning to direct at least one more movie.

Anime News Network is reporting that Hayao Miyazaki is indeed going to come out of retirement to direct a feature, Boro the Caterpillar. This is a movie that has been in development for nearly 20 years and is described simply as the "story of a tiny, hairy caterpillar. So tiny that it may be easily squished between your fingers."

Great-looking anime feature In This Corner Of The World coming to the UK

UK-based company Animatsu Entertainment is bringing the delightful-looking anime In This Corner Of The World to the west...

With Studio Ghibli apparently bowing out of the feature-filmmaking arena, the question naturally arises: where does traditional 2D animation go from here? Fortunately, there are still plenty of Japanese animators willing to fly the flag for the artform - including Sunao Katabuchi, a former Studio Ghibli animator who was an assistant director on the classic Kiki's Delivery Service.

Katabuchi's latest feature is called In This Corner Of The World, based on the manga series by Fumiyo Kouno. Set in a small town outside Hiroshima in the 1940s, it's about a teenager and her family's everyday life in the shadow of World War II.

Crowdfunded last year to the tune of $350,000, the work-in-progress has already been picked up for western distribution by UK-based company Animatsu Entertainment

Due for release in Japan later this year, »

Girl Power: 5 Popular Kids' Movies Where Girls Rule

17 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In 1977, Luke Skywalker blew up the Death Star; in 2015, Daisy Ridley's Rey kicked Kylo Ren's butt so hard, it rocked the galaxy. In a world where girl power is enough to awaken the Force, pink dresses and bubblegum Barbie worlds just aren't cutting it anymore -- our girls want lightsabers, bows and arrows, superpowers, and estrogen-powered role models with both brains and muscles. And why shouldn't they?

So let your girls rule flag fly high with five movies that are happy to oblige, and happy to empower.

1. 'Frozen' (2013)

You probably saw this one coming. "Frozen" packs crazily striking visuals and catchy-stuck-in-your-head melodies that helped win it the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2014, but it's the movie's emotional themes – not just its musical ones – that make it award-worthy for girls of all ages. Anna (Kristen Bell) absolutely refuses to give up on her sister Elsa (Idina Menzel »
