It seems Hayao Miyazaki's Golden Globe nominated film, The Wind Rises, may be the acclaimed Japanese director's final film. The film, which opens February 21st, has garnered a star-studded cast to dub the movie in English. Who will be a part of it? None other than Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Martin Short, Darren Criss and Elijah Wood - just to name a few. As a fan of his films, Gordon-Levitt wanted to a part of one of Miyazaki's masterpieces.  Pertaining to voice acting, the young actor recently said, "What I love about acting is becoming somebody else, and when you're just doing the voice and the animation is providing the visuals, you can really become someone else." You might be wondering as to what this Anime film is about. Set in the early 20th century, It follows a young Japanese boy who dreams of being a pilot and flying to Italy. Eventually, the young man becomes an aeronautical engineer for the fighter planes used in WWII. Through the film, we also follow his emotional roller coaster - of holding hopeful dreams to dealing with illness and loss and then finally guilt. Set in the real world, there is still the fantasy elements within this film. According to Gordon-Levitt, "this one is more grounded in human beings and a historical moment in time," nonetheless, "there's still a flavor of magic in it as you go inside the mind of this aeronautics engineer and you see him walking on the wings of airplanes in his dream." Even though it's not out in the United States, the movie has already gotten critical acclaim. The National Board of review dubbed it the "best animated film of 2013". It has also been nominated for best foreign film. Oscar buzz is already surrounding this movie. Are you excited about this film? Which of Miyazaki's films do you like the best?
