Disney to Distribute Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises Anime Film

For those wondering when to expect Studio Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises anime film in North America, we have some fresh news regarding distribution plans. While Ghibli’s last film, From Up on Poppy Hill, was released courtesy of GKids, The Wind Rises sees the studio’s work hopping back in the hands of Disney.

News came earlier today from the Twitter account of The Hollywood Reporter‘s Borys Kit, who followed that with news that a release date will be announced at a later time. In the meantime, The Wind Rises will debut in the United States at this year’s New York Film Festival, which takes place September 27 – October 13.

Based on Miyazaki’s manga and a novel by Tasuo Hori, The Wind Rises follows the life of World War II Zero fighter designer Jirō Horikoshi, voiced by Neon Genesis Evangelion mastermind Hideaki Anno.
