Hayao Miyazaki's New Anime Film HOW DO YOU LIVE? No Longer Has a Deadline

Hayao Miyazaki is hard at work on his latest film for Studio Ghibli, How Do You Live?, but there seems to have been a change. The film was expected to release next year, but according to an interview with producer Toshio Suzuki in the April issue of Bungei Shunju, there is no deadline for the film.

With the production of this new film, we’re experimenting with having no established deadline. I’m looking forward to how that comes through in the work.

The film will be an adaptation of Yoshino Genzaburo’s story from 1937. Here’s a brief description via CB.

[How Do You Live?] centers on a middle school boy named Honda Junichi. The student lives a quiet life and comes to learn more about adolescence as he exchanges letters with his uncle. The pair grow and learn from one another as Honda grows bored of his pristine life. However, the uncle’s wise words manage to challenge Honda into doing more with his life than what has come to be expected.

I’m excited to see what Miyazaki has in store for us fans. He’s been working on this film since 2017, so it’s sure to be great.
