Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, who has come out of retirement, is working on an animated feature film titled “Kimitachi wa Do Ikiru ka,” (“How Do You Live?”), according to Studio Ghibli sources.

The title is the same as a 1937 book by Genzaburo Yoshino, an editor and writer of children’s literature, according to the sources. They said the book will have significant meaning for the main character in the film, which is expected to take three to four years to complete.
