He was born in Tokyo on january 5th, 1941 and he started his career by
becoming an animator at the studio Toei Animation in 1963. He grew up when
Japan was recovering from the damage done during the second world war.
His father was a aeronautical engineer and this added to Miyazakis fascination
with aero planes and them becoming prominent in his works. While his father
worked on aero planes there were war planes and this lead Miyazaki to express
guilt later on in life.
The movie Miyazaki claims to have stirred his love for animated movies and
pushed him into the career was a movie called Hakujaden (Legend of the
White Snake) which was japans first colored feature-length animated movie.
The studio who created the film was Toei animation who he would end up
working for, he rose the ranks quickly becoming the director of many animated
films before moving on to create his own studio.
