Emily Blunt, Joseph Gordon-Levitt added to Miyazaki’s ‘Wind Rises’
Anime/Manga fans that are excited to see the final installment from the creator of ‘Princess Mononoke’ and ‘Spritied Away’, Hayao Miyazaki, can now expect to hear Levitt and Blunt bring the characters to life.
‘The Wind Rises’ centers on Jiro Horikoshi, a man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II, and you start seeing the connections in the trailer almost immediately (the name should make a little more sense now as well).
With ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’, and ‘Princess Monoke’ doing incredibly well in the past; it was ‘Spirited Away’ that won the honor of being the first anime film to win an Oscar. This is expected to be Miyazaki final film, a dedicated piece to the incredible fighter plane, the creation of the ‘Mitsubishi A6M Zero’. Used in World War II it is still considered to be a marvelous example of industrial design in the field of aviation.
The film was already released in Japan back in July, but a U.S. version is coming this February 21 to North America.
