Guillermo del Toro says his artistic vision was shaped by Hayao Miyazaki

That director is no secret Guillermo del Toro is a big fan of the animation legend Hayao Miyazaki. I mean, who isn’t a Miyazaki fan!? The director is a master of his craft.

When Studio Ghibli The boy and the heron was released, Del Toro praised Miyazaki as the Mozart of his time. he said: “Animation is film, and tonight’s film goes beyond that. Animation is difficult.”

He added: “We are privileged to live in a time when Mozart composed symphonies. Miyazaki san is a master of that stature, and we are so lucky to be here… He changed the medium in which he began, he revolutionized it, proving time and time again that this is an extraordinary work of art.”

Del Toro continues to praise Miyazaki and in an interview with Time Magazine, the director states that his artistic vision was shaped by Miyazaki.

He said: “I discovered Hayao Miyazaki’s Toei Animation films when I was a child The wonderful world of Puss in Boots and series like Heidi and Marco, where his style and influence have become increasingly identifiable.”

And he adds: “Meeting my neighbor Totoro as an adult, my mind returned to those earlier works and I recognized how much this man had shaped my childhood.”

Del Toro concluded: “[Hayao Miyazaki] it is completely genuine. A one of a kind creator who exists fully in his art. He is the most influential animation director in the history of the medium.”

Guillermo del Toro has a deep love for animation and would like to make only animated films in the future. Maybe one day he’ll end up directing his own anime film project. I have no doubt he could do it.
