NHK made waves back in November of 2016 with a TV special focusing on Studio Ghibli co-founder / anime director Hayao Miyazaki coming out of retirement to work on his first 3DCG film, Boro the Caterpillar. Now a special, extended version of the TV special will be broadcast on NHK in January.
“Owaranai Hito: Miyazaki Hayao” (“Neverending Person: Hayao Miyazaki”) will be re-broadcast on NHK BS1 on January 29, 2017, from 7:00 PM – 8:10PM JST. This broadcast will include 20 minutes of previously unpublished footage, which director Kaku Arakawa claims will help viewers to better understand Miyazaki’s feelings.
