Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises hits NY/LA in November


I’m really excited to be seeing Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises at the New York Film Festival. If you’re not attending the NYFF screenings and live in New York or Los Angeles, you’ll be able to catch Miyazaki’s final feature film from November 8th to 14th as part of an Oscar-qualifying run.

Disney and Studio Ghibli announced the week-long engagement at the Toronto International Film Festival yesterday. The Wind Rises will then open in limited theaters on February 21, 2014, with an expanded releases on February 28, 2014.

We should have some brief first impressions of The Wind Rises next week for the start of our NYFF coverage, with a full review to follow the week after. Stay tuned.
