Miyazaki Earthsea update

A while back I blogged about Goro Miyazaki directing a movie based on Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea Cycle, and lamented the fact that I was not able to read Mr. Miyzaki’s blog.

Today I found out that a translation of this blog can be found on Nausicaa.net, source of all knowledge on Miyzazaki and Studio Ghibli.

Mr. Miyazaki explains his view on the Earthsea books now and 20 years ago when he first read it, and how those different views relate to his life, and why he entered the animation industry after having decided not to at a younger age. It also talks about the craft involved in creating and directing an animated movie.

A recommended read.
