Kokurikozaka Kara (コクリコ坂から) – A movie by Goro and Hayao Miyazaki

Next month we will have a new Ghibli movie in Japan. Kokurikozaka Kara (コクリコ坂から, “From Kokuriko’s hill”) is the second movie directed by Goro Miyazaki after Gedo Senki. It seems that father and son have come to terms after their difficulties with Gedo Senki when Hayao Miyazaki expressed his concerns with the movie and did not really work in the production. This time, Hayao Miyazaki has been completely involved in the movie, writing the script and drawing most of the storyboards together with Keiko Niwa and working closely with his son Goro, the director. We could say that this is the first movie made by the Miyazaki’s: father and son.

The movie is based in this manga from the 80s with the same name:

    Hayao Miyazaki did not draw the storyboards of Kokuriko. Goro drew it himself.
