Really sad news. Very few directors alive today have a filmography as rich as Miyazaki's. I really hope his last film ends up being something really special.

He's not really retiring, it's really the studio that said that! As far as the article goes, he's still continuing to doing projects!

Retiring is bad; leads to an increased risk of heart-attack. At least he can consult other directors on their projects.

Though I'd grieve over his departure, he's "quit" more times than Star Trek movies tried to. The Miyazaki Rises again.

The man is 72, I think this time is for real.

Sad to see him go, but I guess he has more than earned it.
