Boro the Caterpillar will begin showing on March 21 at the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, which showcases the animated works of Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli and where the new 14-minute short will join a rotating schedule of screenings.

The museum’s website introduces Miyazaki’s new work as follows: “Just before dawn, Boro the Caterpillar hatched from an egg among patches of scrub grass. Looking around for the first time, he noticed the brilliance of the morning sun and a deliciousness in the air. Boro lowered himself down to the ground from the borogiku (groundsel), and stepped out into the world of caterpillars and caterpillars’ enemies.”

The 77-year-old director behind Howl’s Moving Castle and Spirited Away, who announced his retirement in 2013, was already known to be back at work on a feature film. The completion of Boro the Caterpillar, however, while in the works for the past few years, came as a pleasant surprise to fans.

Tickets to attend the museum in March will go on sale next month. Find information about getting tickets in Japan and abroad at:
