Hayao Miyazaki

Kiki’s Delivery Service


Miyazaki’s first true literary adaptation, Kiki’s Delivery Service, is released. The story follows Kiki, a young witch, as she sets out to build her self-confidence in a modern world.

I was inspired by the struggle of young cartoonists to find work. It’s not simply about making money and earning a living — everybody does that. It’s about living your own life: how do you assert your individuality in this world? I think that’s what everybody was concerned about when we made that film. I think if we made the film now it would turn out different.
