Legendary director Hayao Miazaki is bidding farewell to the world of film. He’s won an Academy Award for his film, Spirited Away, and has directed other notable films such as: Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, Castle in the Sky, and My Neighbor Totoro. With The Wind Rises, Miyazaki explores the life Jiro Horikoshi, the man who revolutionized Japanese fight planes with the Mitsubishi A6M Zero Fighter.
As all Miyazaki films have, The Wind Rises has a stellar voice cast with the likes of: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, John Kransinski, Elijah Wood, Stanley Tucci, Jennifer Grey, and many more. I have seen the Japanese version and calling this film a “work of art” is an understatement. The animation, sound effects, and story are just a couple of the numerous reasons why people should go see this film. Without further ado, take a look at the beautiful The Wind Rises trailer!
This film will be released on February 21, 2014 and is Rated PG-13 for some disturbing images and smoking.
