Hayao Miyazaki, one of the co-founders of Studio Ghibli and a renowned director, has stated that he came out of retirement for one last film titled “How Do You Live?,” which has not yet been released. We are aware that the film is based on the novel of the same name written by Yoshino Genzaburo in 1937, but other details about the film remain unknown to us.
After directing The Wind Rises in 2013, Miyazaki announced his retirement from the film industry. How You Live? will be the director’s first feature film since then. Would he consider coming back for one more Lucasfilm project? The only way to know is to wait.
Lucasfilm is the company that was established in 1971 by George Lucas and is now owned by Disney. Lucasfilm is responsible for a number of successful franchises, including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Willow, and others.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was Lucasfilm’s last full-length feature film, and since then the company has been concentrating on producing series and shorts for Disney+.
Studio Ghibli and Lucasfilm Collaboration
The illustrious Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli has expressed interest in working with the production company Lucasfilm, which is responsible for Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
On Twitter, Studio Ghibli uploaded a clip that was just a few seconds long and featured only the logos of the two companies. After the series of logos that are displayed one after the other, there is no additional text or explanation.
It is important to take note of the fact that the official Star Wars Twitter account did Quote Tweet the video, even though this does not constitute an absolute confirmation that this is a Star Wars project.

The critically acclaimed animated movies “Spirited Away,” “My Neighbor Totoro,” “Princess Mononoke,” and “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind” were all produced by the Japanese animation studio Studio Ghibli.
Will There Be a Second Season of Star Wars: Visions?
In the Disney+ series Star Wars: Visions, George Lucas’ science fiction world was reimagined through the lens of the Japanese style. Anime adaptations are nothing new for the Star Wars franchise, which has a long history of being adapted into the medium.
The anthology show featured the collaboration of a number of different anime studios to tell original, non-canon stories that drew inspiration from the distinctive visual style and characters of the franchise. Some of the contributors who reinterpreted the galaxy far, far away include Kamikaze Douga, Studio Colorido, Geno Studio, and Trigger.
Some fans are under the impression that Studio Ghibli is dropping hints about its possible involvement in the second season of Star Wars: Visions with its most recent announcement.
Star Wars: Visions received generally positive reviews from fans and critics alike. Many of these reviewers pointed out the effort that went into imagining the iconic franchise in a completely new light, which many of them felt was an effective way to approach the project. In spite of the praise, there were those who felt that the show’s many different tones and styles made it difficult to keep a central theme that was consistent throughout.
Showrunner James Waugh has confirmed that the upcoming batch of episodes will consist of more than just anime, and he has dropped hints that Western animation may also be featured.
Waugh stated that “we really wanted it to be, in a way, a’sub-brand’ that allowed for different creators to come celebrate Star Wars from their own unique cultural perspective.” “We really wanted it to be, in a way, a’sub-brand’ that allowed for different creators to come celebrate Star Wars from their own
