Studio Ghibli fans celebrate Hayao Miyazaki’s 81st birthday with gorgeous fan art


Congratulations to Hayao Miyazaki on his 81st birthday! It seems that many Studio Ghibli fans are celebrating as well, and in the most appropriate way. Namely: by fan art.

Happy 81st Birthday, Hayao Miyazaki!

A very happy 81st birthday for him, too, it seems.

It looks like for Hayao Miyazaki’s 81st birthday, fans are taking to Twitter to post all of their Studio Ghibli fan art. The list of works on Comic shows that the art is also quite good, showing as many different Studio Ghibli movies as possible. From the most recognizable to the most obscure. One of the works is not even from a particular Studio Ghibli film, but by Hayao Miyazaki himself, celebrating all he has accomplished in his 81 years of life. Check them out below:

With all the nature of Hayao Miyazaki’s films, this scene could be taken from any of them.

Hayao Miyazaki’s new masterpiece?

How do you live?  attach.
I have no idea what this movie is about, but it’s sure to be good. It’s Studio Ghibli, after all.

Hayao Miyazaki’s filmography may not even be complete. In 2016, he announced he was coming out of retirement to work on a new animated film titled How do you live?. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Yoshino Genzaburō. The book follows 15-year-old Junichi “Koperu” Honda as he grows up with his uncle, and ends up facing his growth as a human being as he goes through the trials of life. Interestingly, this movie is actually meant to be Hayao Miyazaki’s farewell to her grandson, which means we can expect this movie to be particularly poignant. Prepare for the onion ninjas to arrive when you watch this.

Unfortunately, we don’t have a clear release date for How do you live? for you. We only have an estimated release date of 2023, so check back next year to see if we have more details.
