Wild Bunch, Disney Bring The Wind Rises to Europe
posted on by Rae First
The European film distribution and sales company Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli are teaming up again to offer Hayao Miyazaki's new film, The Wind Rises, in Europe. Disney will distribute the film in France. The film will make its North American premiere in Toronto next moth. The film is also expected to play in San Sebastian, Telluride and New York.
The film, which is Miyazaki's first feature film since Ponyo, is loosely based on the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who engineered the Zero fighter plane used by the Japanese during World War II.
Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli have teamed up in the past; Wild Bunch also holds the European licenses for Spirited Away, Ponyo, and Howl's Moving Castle.
