Hayao Miyazaki (Tokyo, 5 January 1941) is a Japanese director, screenwriter, animator, cartoonist and film producer. In his career, Miyazaki has over time become the exponent of Japanese animation best known abroad. His name is also intimately linked to that of Studio Ghibli, an animated film studio he founded in 1985 together with his colleague and mentor Isao Takahata and today considered one of the most important in the industry.
He is considered one of the most influential animators in the history of cinema and, according to many, the greatest living animation director: his figure has been compared several times to that of Walt Disney because of the importance of his contributions in the field of animation and Akira Kurosawa for the centrality in the history of Japanese cinema. According to many critics, Miyazaki deserves credit, together with other colleagues of the caliber of the aforementioned Isao Takahata, Katsuhiro Ōtomo, Satoshi Kon and Mamoru Oshii, of helping to eliminate the stereotype of Japanese animation as a film and television reality inferior or otherwise of null artistic value.
His international fame has increased after the victories of the Golden Bear and the Oscar Award for The Enchanted City, the first and so far only Japanese cartoon to win these prizes. Some of his eleven features have held, or still hold, box office records: Princess Mononoke was the highest grossing film in the history of Japan before the colossal Titanic, which was beaten three years later by The Enchanted City, which remains the film that has more cash in the Japanese rooms.
