Hayao Miyazaki Open to Nausicaä Film Sequel

In an interview on the Japanese channel TBS’s Ō-sama no Brunch program, Hayao Miyazaki said that he would be open to the idea of a possible sequel to Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind; although, if it were to happen, he would leave it in the hands of Evangelion director Hideaki Anno.

When Miyazaki was asked if he was interested in making a continuation or part 2 of Nausicaä, he replied, “No, I don’t. I don’t really feel like doing it, but Anno keeps on saying, ‘I want to do it! I want to do it!’ So I tell him now that I’ve come to think lately that if he wanted to do it, it would be fine for him to do it.”

Anno was a key animator on the Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind film in 1984. Miyazaki and Anno have remained close colleagues, and Anno has just made his voice-acting debut in Miyazaki’s new Studio Ghibli film Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises).
