According to sources like ScreenRant, Hayao Miyazaki proves once again that he can do no wrong with the release of the trailer to his newest film The Wind Rises. Most of you may know him from animated classics like Spirited Away, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Castle in the Sky, and much, much more.
Here’s a quick synopsis of his newest film:
The Wind Rises takes place for about ten years, between the 1920s and 1930s. Most know that this was an especially troubling period for many countries in the world, including Japan. During this time, Japan was subject to great poverty—like the that of the Great Depression—and matters became worse when they were hit with the devastation of the Great Kanto Earthquake and eventually became involved in World War II. Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises is loosely based on Tatsuo Hori’s novel, of the same name, which is a largely fictionalized tale of an aeronautical engineer named Jiro Horikoshi, the planes he happens to design, and his relationship with a TB patient.
The Wind Rises has yet to sport a US release date. However, its trailer and subtitle have just debuted ahead of its screening at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
I don’t know about you, but I am so f*cking excited. Like the classics I mentioned earlier, The Wind Rises not only looks and sounds like its going to be an awesome movie, but it also looks like its going to drive me to tears.
