After watching this clip from Porco Rosso (1992), it’s easy to see why Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki is hailed around the globe as a masterful storyteller and animator, winning an Honorary Academy Award last November for a career that has spanned five decades.
Miyazaki is celebrated for such works as his Oscar-winning Spirited Away (2003), Princess Monoke (1997), Howl’s Moving Castle (2004), and My Neighbor Totoro (1988).
This action-packed clip comes from Porco Rosso and is dubbed by the Oscar-nominated Michael Keaton. The adventure, about a porcine WWI flying ace, is one of three new Disney Blu-ray reissues of classic works from Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli arriving next Tuesday. The other two are Pom Poko and Tales From Earthsea.
