Recorded some time ago, Muz couldn’t join us for this one, so Fikri dragged a colleague of his, Wina, to join him in this long-planned discussion on the films of Studio Ghibli! With reports that the company might shut down for good, they discuss their favourite films of Hayao Miyazaki and co. They rambled on, though, so this is only the first of a two-part session that will continue this weekend, on the world’s only film podcast to mix Bahasa Malaysia, Bahasa Indonesia and English! (but it’s largely in English, though…)
- Report on Studio Ghibli’s future by The Star
- Latest Situation
- Do you need an introduction to Hayao Miyazaki and his retirement?
- You may actually need one for Isao Takahata; his latest film, ‘Princess Kaguya’, could be Studio Ghibli’s last, so why does no one care about him?
- Studio Ghibli + nostalgia = 8-bit tribute film
- Even people at Pixar are inspired by them
- ‘Spirited Away’ by Miyazaki
- ‘Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind’ by Miyazaki
- ‘Castle in the Sky’, and why it’s title is different in Spanish-speaking countries
- ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ by Takahata
- ‘Kiki’s Delivery Service’, and why her name is not Kiki in Spain and her links to Sweden
- ‘Only Yesterday’ by Takahata
- ‘My Neighbour Totoro’ and an explanation for that bath scene
- Disney’s relationship with Studio Ghibli
- ‘Porco Rosso’ by Miyazaki
- ‘Pom Poko’ by Takahata
