The Legendary Japanese animator, director, and manga artist Hayao Miyazaki was as born in Tokyo City on January 5, 1941. His profound contributions to the animation industry have left an enduring impression. One of the most renowned and successful animators in animation history, Miyazaki is regarded across the world for his unparalleled narrative abilities and was a co-founder of Studio Ghibli.


Miyazaki’s early passion with manga and animation inspired him to embark on a career in animation. His enthusiasm inspired him to work as an interim artist at Toei Animation when he joined the company in 1963. During his early Toei years, Miyazaki worked with director Isao Takahata on a number of well-known films, including “Doggie March” and “Gulliver’s Travels Beyond the Moon.” His important animation work on motion pictures like “Animal Treasure Island” and “Puss in Boots” demonstrated his rising talent and significance in the animation field.

Miyazaki’s career continued to ascend as he co-directed “Lupin the Third Part I” alongside Takahata after moving to A-Pro in 1971. Transitioning to Zuiyō Eizō (later Nippon Animation) in 1973, Miyazaki expanded his repertoire by working as an animator on the World Masterpiece Theater and directing the television series “Future Boy Conan” in 1978.

The pivotal moment in Miyazaki’s career occurred in 1979 when he became a member of Tokyo Movie Shinsha and directed “The Castle of Cagliostro,” his debut feature picture, as well as the television series “Sherlock Hound.” He started penning and drawing the manga “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” (1982–1994) around this time, demonstrating his versatility as a storyteller.

In 1985, Miyazaki co-founded Studio Ghibli, a creative powerhouse that would produce some of the most beloved and influential animated films in history. His directorial efforts with Ghibli, including “Laputa: Castle in the Sky” (1986), “My Neighbor Totoro” (1988), “Kiki’s Delivery Service” (1989), and “Porco Rosso” (1992), garnered both critical acclaim and commercial success in Japan.

“Princess Mononoke” became the first animated picture to win the Japan Academy Prize for Picture of the Year when it was released in 1997, making it a historic occasion. Ghibli’s popularity soared throughout the world as a result of its success, and Miyazaki kept setting records with “Spirited Away” (2001), which became the highest-grossing movie in Japanese history and took home the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

In 2013, after the release of “The Wind Rises,” Miyazaki announced his retirement from feature films, but in 2023, he made a triumphant return with his twelfth feature film, “The Boy and the Heron,” demonstrating an enduring passion for storytelling.
