Boo, no cinemas near me

Awesome for anyone with a cinema nearby though.

Just been confirmed that this legendary studio is closing, so now is a good time to go watch the films as a last hurrah.

No Cardiff - so sad. :-(

Link to this confirmation? As far as I know they may well take a break from making films but no one connected to the studio have confirmed future plans.

I think I heard something along those lines when they were advertising When the Wind Rises. Its a shame these films don't get more publicity over here, the story's are so different and original, better than the majority of Disney.

I would travel to another city to see these in a cinema :). Infinite heat OP, muchos cheers for the heads-up!

Very disappointing that London doesn't have more of the classics though, no Totoro, Mononoke or Spirited Away :(. Guess I'll be going to Bristol!

Miyazaki has said that When the Wind Rises would be the last film he works on. Its a shame as the Ghibli films are some of the best films ever made IMHO. Spirited Away, Ponyo and Howls Moving castle would be fantastic to see on a large cinema screen.

Thanks OP! I've booked some tickets.

The BFI Southbank had a month's retrospective in April / May of the complete Ghibli back-catalogue to mark the UK cinema release of The Wind Rises. Daily screenings, with all the classics being shown several times.

I didn't think The Wind Rises was great.

They'd been talking about it for a while. Seems it's only going to exist to manage it's copyrights in the future. Heartbreaking really. Seems there's little faith in Goro's talents going forward.

I forgot about the Southbank showings but these are still rare films to see on the silver sceen. Admittedly I wouldn't waste my money on the yamadas though.
I agree, the animation was obviously good but the story just seemed to take a while to get going and didn't have that much substance in my opinion.

Still no confirmation they have stopped fully. But nothing lasts forever so they may well stop making feature films ( and do those shorts you can see in the Ghibli museum.) i do feel sad about it though as I feel a connection to the studio.

No Howls Moving Castle that's a shame it's one of my all time favourite films. Has anyone else seen it if not I highly recommend it has anyone watched grave of the fireflies either?

Where is the Laputa love???!!! Best Studio Ghibli by a mile IMO

Used to love Laputa too, but having watched it recently found it a little long and boring compared to HMC. I find SA and MNT the best, each to their own though. If you love one of these films you have good taste :-)

Guess I'm just an old school Ghibli fan. Laputa, Nausicaa, Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, GotFF... I can watch Mononoke and Spirited Away but could never enjoy HMC. Don't know why. I can leave the rest.

They have made a TV appearance in Japan to announce the movement away from production and instead manage their current assets. Unless it is a very elaborate hoax this is a very sad day.

they can make a killing off the assets though merchandising the early sketches to select scenes

The shutting down of Studio Ghibli is only a temporary hiatus. There's been a mistranslation that has gone global...

I can still remember watching it on itv the first time it was on in about 1988 (?) on a sunday afternoon. I had no idea what it was but I could not take my eyes off it (I was 8 at the time). Best Ghibli film by far.

You've not seen Spirited Away then?

I love the Ghibli animation style but the plot and stories often fall short. Arrietty could have been a wonderful film but the dull storyline and flat voice direction made it quite tedious. On a lighter note, by mistake the cinema did show a trailer for a violent 18 rated film just before Arrietty, which did liven things up a bit.

CHEEPSTUFFRULES!

lol wow i was 8 as well when I watched it on tv same as you- completely blew me away! :O I remember subsequently checking the TV Times at every opportunity just in case it ever got repeated! X)

Watched the blu ray recently with the wife and kids- they absolutely loved it!

Great minds.... I also used to scour the Radio Times for any Ghibli films (or any other anime) from about 1990-96 (ish). I remember the first time Totoro was on some Sky channel I had to beg my mate to record it for me (we did not have Sky). Kids today with instant access to any media they want don't know how **** it used to be (or how good it was to get hold of a film you had been tracking down for 5+ years!).

Shame there's no Totoro or Fireflies in Glasgow, but still, I really shouldn't pass up the opportunity to see these on the big screen!

You're right that in he is retiring, but Studio Ghibli will carry on, Disney didn't close down when Walt died. Studio Ghibli has a couple of other directors that make Studio Ghibli movies, his son and the guy who made The Cat Returns

It probably won't be the same though, he had the midas touch.
