According to a recent Japanese article
about Hayao Miyazaki
, it appears he will not be retiring after Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi
On November 13th, Miyazaki withdrew his resignation and announced his intent to make yet another animated movie.
Translated from the article:
"In 2004 [Miyazaki] wants to make a new work. Nothing has been decided yet, but for now he wants to enter an all-new area [of animation]. He plans to decide on a simple, original topic."
It is unclear in the article if Hayao Miyazaki
plans to be director or not. The article does, however, refer to him as Director.
ANN would like to note that we originally stated the plans were for a movie in 2002. The correct year is 2004.
