    Studio Ghibli founder Hayao Miyazaki, known for Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro, has officially come out of retirement.

    That's according to Kyodo News, one of the biggest news agencies in Asia.

    Speaking in an interview with Ghibli's Toshio Suzuki, Hayao confirmed he is working on a feature film.

    He announced his retirement in 2012 but it wasn't the first time and in fact some sources say he's "retired" six times.

    In 2015 he started work on a short animation called Boro the Caterpillar. And in December he suggested that perhaps it should "probably be a full-length movie".

    It would be no exaggeration to describe Hayao Miyazaki as the godfather of animation in Japan - some might even say the world.

    He founded Studio Ghibli in 1985 and it has long been seen as Japan's answer to Disney.

    In 2003 he won an Oscar for best animated feature film with Spirited Away.

    This guy has no idea when to stop; he wanted to retire after Princess Mononoke but then he still made Spirited Away. I went to see his "last" film at the movies a few years back. Not that I'm complaining though, I love everything he's done. Oh grumpy old man who thinks weeaboos are the trash of society. You're so right.
