Studio Ghibili is set to release two new films this year.

The Japanese animation studio shared the news via a New Year message to fans. They shared that two movies are in the pipeline and one of these will be directed by Hayao Miyazaki himself.

The only downside of the news is that the launch of the Studio Ghibli theme park has now been delayed until 2022. This is a result of the typhoons that Japan suffered in 2019.

The studio shared in a statement: “By the way, the zodiac of 2020 is ‘child’. Rats are a symbol of prosperity because of their fertility and are also said to be the angels of the god of fertility.

“I hope that the mood of the stagnating society will be renewed and that we will have a year of hope. Studio Ghibli continues to work on two new films. Also, Ghibli Park has started in earnest, so we hope to be able to deliver a lot of excitement again this year.”

No release date has been confirmed but we look forward to receiving updates on the two new films later this year.
