Miyazaki to appear at convention between visits to Berkeley & Beverly Hills

The Los Angeles Times newspaper reports that Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind) will appear for the first time at San Diego's Comic-Con International (CCI) next month. According to the paper, the Studio Ghibli co-founder will show clips from his latest film, Ponyo, at the convention.

On July 25 — the Saturday that falls in the middle of CCI — Miyazaki will travel to the University of California, Berkeley in northern California to accept the second annual Berkeley Japan Prize and participate in a moderated discussion. The Tuesday after CCI, Miyazaki will travel to Beverly Hills to appear at the headquarters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS of Oscar fame) for a tribute with Pixar director John Lasseter.

Ponyo will open in the United States on August 14, after its English-language premiere on Sunday at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
