The Japanese anime house appears to be fully back in the feature business with films from Miyazaki junior and senior both in the works.

Studio Ghibli has confirmed Goro Miyazaki, son of Hayao, is also working on a feature film, following the management shuffle at the legendary anime house announced this week.

Studio Ghibli co-founder and producer Toshio Suzuki announced that Miyazaki junior is making a CG animated feature while his father works on his hand-drawn Kimitachi wa do Ikiru ka (How do you Guys Live?).

Goro, 50, previously directed Tales from Earthsea (2006) and From Up on Poppy Hill (2011), while his 26-episode TV series Ronja, the Robber's Daughter was completed in 2014 and streamed this year on Amazon Video.

No title or details have yet been announced for Goro's film, but it appears that Ghibli is truly back in the feature business. Suzuki, known over the years for making confusing statements about the studio, also hinted there were more films in the works.

"Ghibli will keep making films. That is the true path for Ghibli. Continuing on is all we can do; until the day we are unable to do so. That is what I have resolved to do," said Suzuki.
