Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki revealed in an interview on Fuji TV‘s Bokura no Jidai (Our Period) tv program on Sunday that the studio has obtained a variety of affords to adapt Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind into live-action. The checklist contains eminent administrators resembling Evangelion‘s Hideaki Anno (Shin Godzilla, Shin Ultraman, Shin Kamen Rider).
Actor Hidetaka Yoshioka commented that director Takashi Yamazaki (All the time: Sundown on Third Avenue, live-action House Battleship Yamato and Parasyte, Lupin III THE FIRST, Stand By Me Doraemon) had all the time mentioned that he wished to make a Nausicaä live-action model. To this, Suzuki replied that he had heard this from Yamazaki himself, however he was all the time telling him no. In line with him, everybody needs to make a Nausicaä live-action undertaking apart from Hayao Miyazaki, who directed the unique animated movie.
In 2013, Miyazaki revealed in an interview that he’s open to the potential of a Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind movie sequel. Nonetheless, he would depart such a hypothetical undertaking within the fingers of Evangelion director Hideaki Anno.
When requested if he was excited about making a continuation or half 2 of Nausicaä, he replied, “No, I do not. I do not actually really feel like doing it, however Anno retains on saying, ‘I need to do it! I need to do it!,’ so I inform him now that I’ve come to suppose recently that if he wished to do it, it will be high quality for him to do it.”
In 2012, Anno created a live-action tokusatsu (special-effects) brief with Ghibli titled Large God Warrior Seems in Tokyo. The brief attracts inspiration from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
Anno was a key animator on Nausicaä, and he later drew inspiration from the movie’s Large God Warriors (and childhood reminiscences of the tokusatsu franchise Ultraman) to create Evangelion.
