From Up on Poppy Hill poster … it’s not a Disney poster; I think this is something for a possible screening or festival; but still awesome.
巨神兵 ~ Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo ~
Check out this “live action” featurette created for an exhibit on cinematic practical effects at Tokyo’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
Neon Genesis Evangelion director Hideaki Anno and Studio Ghibli have teamed up for a live-action featurette based on Hayao Miyazaki's post-apocalyptic anime classic Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
This short ~ Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo ~ features the world-ending monsters from the beginning of the film done tokusatsu style.
Kind of AMAZING!
Oh god yes. I want this Batman.
Masater Yupa approves.
French comic artist Moebius was a major influence for Hayao Miyazaki’s work in manga. In the first American issue of Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind, there was a discussion between Miyazaki and Moebius, and Moebius did a poster for the issue featuring the character (as seen above).

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!
can’t breathe … … must calm down …
I just read that Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece and my favorite Studio Ghibli film (ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES ACTUALLY) Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is coming out on Blu-ray next week; March 8th - TUESDAY!!!
Also his son Gozo's first stab at directing a feature Tales from Earthsea comes out that day too. It played in limited release last summer and I never got a chance to catch it in the theatre. So I am really excited about picking it up too! Disappointed it’s not getting a Blu-ray release only DVD. o_O
Also if you have a previous Studio Ghibli release from Disney you can go to Disney’s Movie Rewards site and get a coupon for $10 off Nausicaä.
Happy Birthday Hayao Miyazaki!
AWWWWW FUCK!!! I WANT THAAAAATTTTTTT NOOOOWWWW!!!!
