No studio these days seems to have a more consistent and signature animation style than Studio Ghibli. Check out the beautiful new images we’ve seen online from their upcoming film The Wind Rises (Kaze Tachinu) directed by animation legend Hayao Miyazaki. The film opens exclusively in Japan on July 20, 2013.

We’ve learned that the film tells the story of Hiro Horikoshi, the man who designed the Japanese “Zero Fighter” plane during World War II. We’ve also learned that the film is an adaptation of Miyazaki’s most recent color comic as well as an adaptation of a novel by Tatsuo Hori.

Studio Ghibli recently tweeted:

“The Studio Ghibli Int’l Team is hard at work to bring you #TheWindRises as soon as possible after the Japan opening on July 20!”

We will keep you posted as we learn more about the release of the film worldwide.
