Studio Ghibli director Goro Miyazaki (From Up On Poppy Hill, Tales from Earthsea) remarked at an event at the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo on Monday that he currently has a new project in development. Miyazaki added that he is currently working on the new project every day, but said that he could not say anything about it right now. Miyazaki added that the new project should be completed next year. Miyazaki was at the museum to discuss and promote a new series of the British stop-motion animated series Shaun the Sheep, which will premiere on TV in Japan on May 11.
Goro Miyazaki (the son of studio founder Hayao Miyazaki) made his directorial debut with the 2006 film Tales from Earthsea. The younger Miyazaki then directed the 2011 anime film From Up On Poppy Hill, which is an adaptation of the shōjo manga Kokuriko-Zaka Kara by Chizuru Takahashi and Tetsurō Sayama. GKIDS is currently releasing the film in theaters in North America, and will then release the film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD later this year.
