Back in 2013, world-renowned filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki retired from making feature films, with the creator announcing his return to the medium this year. The reason for his return has finally surfaced, despite Miyazaki citing his retirement was due to his declining vision, among other things. According to his long-time producer Toshio Suzuki, Miyazaki came out of resignation for his grandson.

According to Shukan Josei Prime, when Suzuki was recently on NHK television show Nichiyobi Bijitsukan (Sunday Art Gallery), he revealed Miyazaki’s motivation. “He [Miyazaki] said, ‘I’m making it for my grandson.’” Suzuki resumed that Miyazaki also said that his grandson may say, “Grandpa passed into the next world, but he left this work.” Suzuki added, “No doubt Ghibli fans are looking at the TV, blurting, ‘Hey! Wait a second. That’s the reason?!” Are you doing the same, sans the TV? Let us know in the comment section below, and be sure to check out Miyazaki’s newest project, which is expected to release before the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020.
