Fun Facts About the Production of 'The Wind Rises' - Academy Award Nominee for Best Animated Feature

Submitted by melissa on February 22, 2014 - 8:54pm


In “The Wind Rises,” Jiro (voice of Joseph Gordon-Levitt) dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni (voice of Stanley Tucci). Nearsighted and unable to be a pilot, he becomes one of the world’s most accomplished airplane designers, experiencing key historical events in an epic tale of love, perseverance and the challenges of living and making choices in a turbulent world.

Originally released in Japanese with English subtitles, the English-version of The Wind Rises doesn't quite capture the experience as I would have imagined it would. However, it's truly beautiful, vibrate and possibly the last film by writer/director Hayao Miyazaki so I just had to see it.

Dazzled by the visuals, the pace was slow and steady, never quite gaining momentum. One element that I was puzzled by was the sound effects. Listening, I could swear they were actual people making the sounds. Guess what? That's true. Read about it after the jump.
