Ghibli's Isao Takahata to Receive Annie Awards' Lifetime Achievement Award
“Entertainment news website Variety announced on Thursday that Studio Ghibli’s co-founder Isao Takahata will receive the Winsor McCay Award for lifetime achievement at the 43rd Annie Awards on Saturday.
Takahata will receive the award alongside Phil Roman (Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown’s co-director) and the late Joe Ranft (head of story at Pixar).
Variety asked Takahata if The Tale of Princess Kaguya was his last film or if he was inspired with another story, and Takahata responded, ‘I have several projects that I still have in mind that I am currently working on to get closer to realizing. Whether those will be finalized as films is something that no one, myself included, can know.’"
