This moving castle is a sad one

Appearing on the TBS program Jonetsu Tairiku, Studio Ghibli representative director and co-founder Toshio Suzuki stated that the studio was undergoing great changes. In light of Hayao Miyazaki's retirement last year the studio is trying to find its way.

Suzuki stated that the changes may include dismantling the production department entirely. Although there has been talk among some about dissolving the studio outright, Suzuki wanted to emphasize that the truth is that the studio is considering "housecleaning" or restructuring for now.

Suzuki did not downplay Miyazaki's retirement. He stated that the studio could keep producing movies forever, however for the moment they were pausing and considering their next move.
