Hayao Miyazaki back to make animated short for Studio Ghibli museum

Hayao Miyazaki, the beloved director of classic animes like My Neighbor Totoro and The Castle of Cagliostro who retired in 2013, is working on a new animated short, according to Variety.

Miyazaki is directing a computer generated short for the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. The ten-minute film stars a hairy caterpillar and will take about three years to complete.

When Miyazaki retired in 2013, he told the press that it was a retirement from making feature films, but that he still had things he wanted to do.
