Studio Ghibli fans everywhere were beside themselves with excitement when it was announced that renowned director Hayao Miyazaki would be coming out of retirement to make one final film, which is rumoured to be a feature-length adaptation of his short film "Boro the Caterpillar." But as Miyazaki gears up production on his film for its scheduled 2019/2020 release, it looks like he will need some help getting the movie done in time.
The official Studio Ghibli website recently posted up a series of job openings for animators and background artists for an upcoming feature film. The contracts are for 3 years, which makes sense if Miyazaki's film is to make its scheduled 2019/2020 release date.
Given that Miyazaki has been largely retired from making awesome films since 2013's "The Wind Rises," there is no doubt that people will be jumping at the opportunity to work with the master himself!
