Yellowbelly Time part 5/10


I hope you're all enjoying the interview, there's a lot more to come next week.

It's a big weekend for Miyazaki fans--PONYO opens in US theaters today! I can't wait to see it, Miyazaki is my absolute hero! And it's really fun to see his movies in an actual theater. Only his last three have had US theatrical releases, PRINCESS MONONOKE (had to drive an hour to find a theater playing it, back in '98) SPIRITED AWAY (maybe my favorite--they're all my favorite) and HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE. So go see PONYO, it'll probably only be in theaters a week or two!

So how do animated interviews work? Is it like TRON, where the person physically gets sucked into the animated world?

If this is what you're doing, let me know. I've got a score to settle with Sally Forth--she knows what she did.

Did you get to see Miyazaki at Comic con? I heard he was doing a panel or something with John Lasseter. Man... I would have loved to be there!

Nathan said...

Yes, ueber, I have zapped Shannon with that TRON lazer, only a cartoony version. Sally Forth has a warrant out, from the Boring Police, I believe.

And Juliana I MISSED the Miyazaki panel. It was the one thing I wanted to see most at CC. But it was the same day as the Eisner ceremony, somehow, when the day was over, I didn't get to it. SO SAD.

How'd you get the book cover squinched into that little cartoon? And I knew Plum would be the bandleader, he's such an excellent drummer!

Love the clip, love the interview, love the Yellowbelly!

Q said...

Hold up temptingly, no kidding. I want one.

OH! I wish I could go see Ponyo! He's like, THE BEST animator ever!

You ZAPPED Shannon Hale with a TRON laser? Well, I hoped she had fun being ZAPPED! (;

Ooh! I love Miyazaki! My family thinks spirited away is WAY to strange, but I love it. And Howl is one of my favorite movies!

I want to read Forest Born. Excited.

Forest Barn, hahaha! That's hilarious. How I've been trying to get my hands on that book!

I'm loving these cartoons!! And Miyazaki is the BEST. I'm so excited for Ponyo! Spirited Away, Howl, Kiki, and Totoro are among my favorites. :D

Thanks for your book, Rapunzel's Revenge. My daughters and I really enjoyed it and have colored the paper dolls we printed from your site - thanks!

Hey anonymous, glad you liked RR. The paper dolls, if anyone's looking for them, can be linked to from the blog under "Activities" I gotta put more stuff in there.
