Miyazaki started working on “How Do You Live?” back in 2016.
Although the project is inspired by Genzaburo’s novel, it will feature a different plot. Instead of taking place in prewar Japan, it will reportedly be a “big, fantastical story,” with Miyazaki having written its screenplay. 
The film, which uses hand-drawn animation, took approximately six years to make, with just 12 minutes of animation produced every year.
“How Do You Live?” will be screened in Japan on July 14, 2023. A U.S. release date has yet to be announced.
