Yes, I am a very proud father who is writing this blog on Miyazaki. First of all Miyazaki is my favorite director of animation movies of all time. His movies are original, imaginative, recognizable and timeless and are far more contemporary than any Disney product from the last 40 years. Here is a director who translates stories into movies in a way that appeals to young and old.
In december i learned that Netflix purchased the movies of the Ghibli studio for their streaming service and they were translating 20 of them for their foreign channels .
Lucas, my son who is a voice actor, was doing audition for one of them and was given the the main role of HAKU in “SPIRITED AWAY”.
Yesterday, on a rainy Sunday afternoon we saw the result and what already was one of my favorite Miyazaki movies, became my all time favorite animation movie. An excellent job he did with Haku and it made me proud and look forward to the rest of the Ghibli movies that will be released in the coming months.
