Next to Miyazaki and Takahata being fans of his work, Sugiuras name is to be found on Pom Poko s end credits as a thank you for inspiring the films tanuki. As brough by Comic Natalie, Studio Ghiblis new commercial will have its TV premier on August Earlier Studio Ghibli Yomiuri Shimbun commercials can be found on the Ghibli ga Ippai Special Short Short DVD. 30th of July, MIYAZAKI AT BERKELEY COVERAGE COMING UP: Last Saturday Michael Guilln, film critic and colleague over at Twitch, was at a very special Miyazaki event to cover for GhibliWorld.

Miyazaki conversed with Roland Kelts Tokyo University lecturer and author of Japanamerica. Their conversation animated the adulatory crowd. 29th of July, MORE IMAGERY OF MIYAZAKI IN THE US: With Miyazaki Hayaos visit to the US, yesterday more special events took place: a press conference at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills more coverage on that soon, Ponyo s premiere at the El Capitan Theatre and AMPAS The Marc Davis Celebration of Animation: Hayao Miyazaki.

It will help us much, because we will be busy producing the next feature length movie. Furthermore, Studio Ghibli partner Lawson is having a special Ponyo Bowl campaign to promote their original bakery, deserts, sweets and sandwiches. From July 21 till September 30 everyone who collects 20 point about 2000-2500 Yen can get Ponyo bowls.

Mike Blake brought GhibliWorld word on Cinema Blend having video footage of it and, even though GhibliWorld was represented there as well and Miyazaki didnt tell anything new due to the basic questions, it is still much worth taking a look. Hence, Cinema Blends video footage of Miyazaki Hayao and John Lasseter below. 25th of July, A VISIT TO GHIBLI MUSEUMS PONYO EXHIBITION: Starting August 14 Miyazakis latest creation will screen in US cinemas under the shortened title Ponyo. In Japan the people are somewhat past that moment though, as it has already been one year ago that the film was released there and since May 23 till May 2010 it even has a dedicated Gake no ue no Ponyo exhibition at Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. Occasional GhibliWorld contributor Kaonashi Tamura recently paid a visit and, together with additional background information and imagery, excepts of his experience can be found in italic. I went to Tokyo in the worst physical condition. And so, in order to save any physical capacity, I directly went to Mitaka. The bus ran along Tamagawa canal and soon arrived at Ghibli Museum. This was my 4th visit there.
