Hayao Miyazaki Turned Down a Hollywood Remake for Nausicaä

We’ve learned (via NHK) that Studio Ghibli creator Hayao Miyazaki has turned down a Hollywood offer to remake his classic Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

While Miyazaki has turned down several Hollywood offers to remake the classic manga into a live-action film, Miyazaki actually gave the ok to adapt the story into a kabuki rendition. This is a big deal considering Miyazaki has claimed Nausicaä is the most important work he has ever created.

The kabuki version will star Onoe Kikunosuke as Nausicaä, and Nakamura Shichinosuke as Princess Kushana. Keiko Niwa (known for writing several Ghibli films) is penning the script on the adaptation.

The kabuki version is set to run from December 6th to the 25th in Tokyo.

    Fucking hollywood getting woke and creatively bankrupt, they keep aiming at anime and manga because they now realize the amount of strong female characters the medium has always had, but ofc instead of keeping the charm of those characters they just race swap and redesign them. Fuuuuuck I hate what the west has become

      Kabuki is a Japanese genre of theater play, with actors using elaborate masks and dance to play out the story

    This isn’t a surprise to me.
    Nausicaa is one the most important, if not THE most important work Miyazaki has done. It really is a masterpiece…
    And the last time a “western” hand got ahold of it… what came out was… “Warriors of the Wind”. If you’ve never heard of it, take the time to look it up. That abomination kept us from getting quality adaptations of the Ghibli films until John Lasseter and Disney stepped in and personally assured Hayao that his works would have no cuts.
    That Hollywood would desire a remake, and that Ghibli would resoundingly reject that, is just the natural order of things.
