In Hollywood we get an endless amount of trailers, TV spots, clips, featurettes and everything in between, but thankfully Studio Ghibli does things a bit different. Although their next work is getting a theatrical release in Japan tomorrow, after a short teaser, the first full-length, four-minute trailer for Hayao Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises has landed.
Marking his first feature since 2008′s Ponyo, the film takes inspiration from the director’s own manga and a novel by Tatsuo Hori.
