Filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki has a long and rich history in the world of animation and Japanese cinema. He got his start as an artist at Toei Animation getting into directing on television shows like Lupin III and Sherlock Hound. With the creation of Studio Ghibli in 1985 Miyazaki would go on to create one of the most impressive filmographies, animated or otherwise. With Nerdist’s announcement of The Collected Works of Hayao Miyazaki (and Amazon exclusive) coming to blu-ray this November 17th, I wanted to stack up and compare his entire feature catalogue that is included in the boxset (although it does come with some juicy extras including a pilot Miyazaki directed in the early 70s). Now, Miyazaki has gone on record declaring that he is officially retired from feature filmmaking (a CGI short is forthcoming), but I’m not holding my breath as he’s said this after completing every film of his since Princess Mononoke (in ’97). For now though we have eleven great films to explore with my list from most favorite to lease favorite below. Be sure to let me know how you rank his films in the comments section!
