Studio Ghibli, which has produced every Miyazaki toon since 1985, is releasing only the odd tidbit about the new pic, such as the July excursion of Miyazaki and his main staff to scout locations in Kobe, a port on Japan’s Inland Sea, and Miyazaki’s use of watercolors for his storyboards — a departure from his B&W norm."
