At the Venice Film Festival on Sunday, Ghibli Studio president Koju Hoshino announced that legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki, 72, will retire “from feature-length films,” so his involvement on smaller projects cannot be entirely ruled out.

Miyazaki’s 11th film, The Wind Rises (Kaze Tichinu) was released in Japan back in July and has been nominated at the Venice Film Festival.

A more formal press regarding Miyazaki will occur next week.
