The Wind Rises Official Trailer (Video)

The Wind Rises is a visually stunning look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the man who designed Japanese fighter planes during World War II. I personally love Hayao Miyazaki films and from what I understand this is his final movie that he will be making. If that is true (because he has said he was retiring before) he leaves behind an awesome legacy of timeless movies. I remember seeing My Neighbor Totoro as a kid and that movie was one of the major influences that really started getting me into Anime.

The Wind Rises is an important film that caps off an amazing career that really helped bring the Japanese animation style to mainstream America. Even before I relaized this might be his last film I got a very haunting feeling just from the trailer…I think it was the music. Once again the visual art style of Miyazaki comes through with bright colors and lots of emotion. I look forward to seeing this movie especially if this is his last.

Anyways check out the trailer for The Wind Rises and let us know what you think. Does this look like a movie you will go see and do you have any other favorites from Hayao Miyazaki? Leave us a comment below or on our Facebook Page.
