The pictures above and below are the stills of “Thousand and Thousand Seeking” and “Hui Ye Ji Story”.21 films under the name of Studio Ghibli co-founded by Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki will be exclusively launched in streaming media HBO MAX North America on May 27, which will end Ghibli Studios ‘years of streaming ban.These films include Hayao Miyazaki’s most prestigious animation works, such as “Thousand and Thousand Seeking”, and “Hui Ye Ji Story” that Ghibli participated in the production.For a long time before, North American audiences could only relive those animated classics produced by Studio Ghibli in cinemas or by purchasing genuine discs.Recently, Ghibli Studio’s co-founder and producer Toshio Suzuki accepted an interview with foreign media, saying that his change in the impression of streaming media came from an interview with Hollywood famous director Woody Allen.Suzuki told reporters “I have been working in film for a long time, and I always think that the film should be shown in a movie theater.We have always been hesitant to expand further in other broadcasting methods.Seeing Woody Allen making movies specifically for streaming platforms, this thing made me think about it.”Since 2016, Allen and Amazon Pictures have successively collaborated on” Coffee Commune “,” Six Crises “and” Ferris Wheel “and other works.Suzuki said, “I read Allen’s interview, which changed my mind.”But Suzuki also emphasized that the studio’s goal in film production remains basically unchanged.He said that these decisions are more like adapting to the times, and Ghibli continues to do so to make movies that define his own work.Woody Allen was on the shooting scene of the series “Six Crises”.Ghibli Studio’s movie library is one of the most popular competitive targets in the battles of major streaming companies in recent years.Suzuki also explained the reason for choosing HBO as the final partner.As a fan of the Clint Eastwood movie, Suzuki is interested in the HBO platform ‘s connection with the parent company Warner Bros. “Whenever I watch Clint Eastwood ‘s movie, there will be Warner Brothers’The name appears.So, I wanted to work with Warner Brothers for a long time.”Suzuki Toshio responded to Hayao Miyazaki’s permission to go live streaming: getting more money for the movie. However, Hayao Miyazaki may not be very familiar with this streaming war.According to Suzuki, Miyazaki is still concentrating on the new work “What kind of life do you want to live”.This is a story of a little boy who lived with his uncle after his father’s death and experienced a spiritual journey with him.”For the film Miyazaki is currently producing, we have 60 animators involved, but we can only produce one minute of animation per month.This means that a production time of 12 months a year can only produce 12-minute movies.In fact, we have been producing this movie for three years, so so far, we have completed 36 minutes of work.We hope to complete it in the next three years.It takes time and money to make a movie.”Suzuki said frankly in an interview that this is another reason for the cooperation between Studio Ghibli and North American streaming.>>> Miyazaki’s lower works have to wait for 3 years, 15-year-old boy is the protagonist. When asked if the studio will one day make movies specifically for streaming media, Suzuki said: “We are studying people from all over the worldThe feedback of Qi Jun’s new works, the future development of the (studio) will also depend on the new works.However, I think I am more willing to make movies for the cinema.”Sauna Night Network Editor Huang Jialing Intern Cao Yuxin Proofreading Lu Qian
