Welcome to the Summer of Miyazaki! We’re doing something special on the Culturezoo Podcast this summer and we’re going to discuss all the films of animator/writer/director Hayo Miyazaki. Each week we’ll be going through his films in chronological order of their release date and examining common themes and ideas in addition to the unique details of each film.
On today’s episode Levi and Rosalyn cover Miyazaki’s first feature-length film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind and yet we end up talking about Tolkien and fairy tales for most of the podcast.
Also we will try to post some fan art of the film over this week.
Next week: Castle in the Sky!
