Today I would like to share some interesting news that I have read.
It is about sort of collaboration between Ghibli's Miyazaki and Eva's Anno which they have done in the past.

But now they are talking about making Nausicaa 2 directed by Anno the director of Evangelion (Other popular anime series. if you don't know Evangelion, check this article to learn more!)

"Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" is one of the masterpieces of director Hayao Miyazaki.

In fact, it is known that Nausicaa's story has a continuation, so there are many voices who want to make a sequel into a movie.
However, Mr. Miyazaki is famous for not making a sequel.

As for Nausicaa, he asserted that he would not make a sequel. However, it is said that the story of the sequel to Nausicaa has been raised since 2011.

And it is said that the director of the so-called Nausicaa 2 is Hideaki Anno, who is known as the director of Evangelion. Is it really true?

Miyazaki Already has given him permission to make Nausicaa 2?

It is said that Hideaki Anno longs for a sequel to "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind," and Hayao Miyazaki has given permission.


Nausicaa 2 is very possible to be made by Anno

"Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind" is the second animated film produced by Hayao Miyazaki.
It is often called Ghibli animation, but it is produced by Topcraft, the predecessor of Studio Ghibli. Therefore, it is not exactly a Ghibli animation.
In fact, Nausicaa has a manga version, which also depicts the story after the movie.
Since the movie is only drawn up to the beginning of the manga, there are quite a lot of fans who want a sequel.
Mr. Miyazaki is famous for not making a sequel, and he does not intend to make it at all.
However, the sequel to Nausicaa may be produced by another director. The director is Hideaki Anno, who is famous as the director of Neon Genesis Evangelion and Shin Godzilla.
Mr. Anno has a history of becoming an animator by applying for additional recruitment of Nausicaa staff, and his feelings for Nausicaa seem to be stronger than anyone else.
Anno has offered to make a sequel to Nausicaa, but Miyazaki has rejected it.
After that, a sequel was planned, but in the end the plan disappeared. However, when Mr. Miyazaki said in 2011, "Anno says he wants to do what he wants to do, so if he does, he can do it," fans are expecting a sequel.In addition, the possibility that Mr. Miyazaki himself would make a sequel was completely denied at the 2013 retirement interview.

Isn't Nausicaa 2 what the director of Evangelion wants to shoot?

There is no doubt that Mr. Anno wants to shoot a sequel to Nausicaa, but in the first place, Mr. Anno wanted to shoot "Kushana Senki" with Nausicaa's character Kushana as the main character.
Kushana is the fourth princess of Tormekia who attacked the Valley of the Wind in the movie, and is a villain-like standing position in the movie.
Mr. Anno seemed to want to make a separate story with Kushana as the main character, and he seemed to think of it as a side story of Nausicaa.
It seems that Mr. Miyazaki refused this if it didn't become a good one. However, with the permission issued in 2011, the possibility of a sequel being made has become a reality.
After that, in a conversation with Studio Ghibli CEO Toshio Suzuki, Anno commented that he would like to make the final volume of Nausicaa's manga and the story after that.

It seems that he changed his mind to make the final version of Nausicaa instead of the side story.


Share the story that Nausicaa 2 may be made by the other famous director.
Currently, it seems that Hayao Miyazaki has given permission, so there is a possibility that a sequel will be made.
Anno was working hard making new Evangelion as well as Shin Godzilla. Now that those 2 have completed, there might be more chance that he has been working on making Nausicaa 2. And if that's the case, I believe it will not be too long to come out and we will see very soon!
