In the NHK television special "The Man Who Is Not Done: Hayao Miyazaki" on Sunday, acclaimed anime director Hayao Miyazaki mentioned that he wants to come out of retirement and make another film. If you remember, the Japanese anime master retired three years ago after the release of "The Wind Also Rises."

Miyazaki has been working "Boro the Caterpillar." It was intended as a short,but Miyazaki wasn't too satisfied with it. It was this past August that he suggested the short become a feature-length film. He says the film could be done by 2019, right before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

"Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki commented that Miyazaki will draw storyboards until he dies, and another staffer dryly noted that this would make the movie a huge hit."
Despite not officially receiving a green-light for the feature film, Miyazaki decided to start animation work on the project anyway. He plans on creating storyboards for about 100 cuts of footage.
