A touching 8-bit tribute to Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki

It’s no wonder we see tributes to Hayao Miyazaki all the time. This talented director, animator and author is behind all our favourite films like Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Howl’s Moving Castle.

The latest and greatest tribute to Miyazaki and his characters comes to us from Pablo Fernandez Eyre, a filmmaker who created this video with a clever 8-bit theme, complete with the iconic chiptune music. While Miyazaki announced ‘The Wind Rises’ would be his last feature, fear not!

This animation maestro is directing an animated short for the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, Tokyo. Fingers crossed it comes out soon!
