Hayao Miyazaki Open to a NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND Sequel; Hideaki Anno May Direct


Since 1986, Studio Ghibli has been in the business of providing original animated features that have grown into modern classics, though a sequel film or franchise has yet to appear on their production slate.  Writer-director Hayao Miyazaki, who has had a creative hand in well over half of the studio’s productions, recently suggested that this might change in the near future for one particular film.  Though Miyazaki technically wrote and directed Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind just before Studio Ghibli was formed, he’s apparently open to a sequel of the beloved adaptation.  The real kicker here is that he wouldn’t be directing it; that honor would fall to Neon Genesis Evangelion director, Hideaki Anno.  Hit the jump for more.
