An exclusive four-part documentary on Japanese animator and filmmaker and Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki is now available to stream online for free. Titled 10 Years With Hayao Miyazaki, the picture is streamable thanks to Japanese broadcaster NHK.
Delving into the life and creative process of the legendary filmmaker, 10 Years With Hayao Miyazaki originally released in 2019. The documentary touches on some of Miyazaki’s most beloved films including My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo, Spirited Away, and The Wind Rises, while also addressing how Studio Ghibli dealt with 2011’s Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. A portion of the picture hones in on Miyazaki’s personal life as well as his relationship with his son and fellow filmmaker, Gorō Miyazaki.
Free online availability of 10 Years With Hayao Miyazaki comes as HBO MAX will soon be streaming 21 Studio Ghibli films in North America when the service launches in May. Back in February, Ghibli movies became available for streaming for the first time outside of North America on Netflix.
Fans of Miyazaki can look forward to a new short film, How Do You Live?, based on Genzaburō Yoshino’s 1973 book of the same name. The upcoming picture is Miyazaki’s first animated feature project since 2013’s The Wind Rises.
