Hosoda, Miyazaki to Co-Direct ’Pippi Longstocking (x)

“Acclaimed director Hayao Miyazaki will join Mamoru Hosoda (The Boy and the Beast) to produce ‘Pippi Longstocking’, a film Miyazaki had attempted in 1971 with Isao Takahata.

Though Miyazaki had stated he would not work on any more features after ‘The Wind Rises’, it seems he is still full of surprises.

Hosoda’s latest effort ‘The Boy and the Beast’ was released in July 2015. ‘Pippi’ is expected for a 2020 release.”
