Hayao Miyazaki to produce first sequel

Whatever disease Pixar has, it is spreading across The Pacific Ocean to Japan. Studio Ghibli Animation Master Hayao Miyazaki has announced he is working on his first sequel. Porco Rosso: The Last Sortie will be a sequel to the 1992 film Porco Rosso. The initial film was set in WWI about an Italian fighter pilot cursed and turned into a pig.

Miyazaki is quoted as saying that The Last Sortie will be set during the Spanish Civil War and that it will represent a sort of artistic escape for him at the moment, focusing on a male character after so many films with female protagonists.

I loved Porco Rosso, it was light and funny despite the serious material. Can’t wait to see how Miyazaki does with a return to that world.
