According to a recent report by Slash Film, studio director Hayao Miyazaki recently announced that his next project won't be making its original deadline. Although Miyazaki is officially retired, he reprised his directorial duties to create a brand new feature film entitled, How Do You Live?

Based on Genzaburo Yoshino‘s 1937 novel of the same name, How Do You Live? tells the story of a 15-year-old boy named Koperu, who moves into his uncle’s house after his father’s death and undergoes a fantastic quest. It was originally supposed to coincide with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but now it seems as though production has stalled.
