TOKYO – Hayao Miyazaki responded angrily last night to rumors that his last film, the Oscar nominated The Wind Rises, was ‘all about farting’.
The 83 year old maestro of Japanese animation said:
This is a disgrace. This is a serious film, a summation of my life’s work and a testament to the powers of the imagination and yet this so called website The Studio Exec is making cheap bottom woof jokes at its expense. It is utterly unforgivable.
The Studio Exec published the news in an article simultaneously with this article that you’re currently reading. The world of Hollywood was enraged by the suggestion and Ben Affleck rushed to the defence of the film maker.
‘Miyazaki is a master at what he does,’ said Batman. ‘By all means take shots at me. I’m a bit of a hack. But Miyazaki is an artist deserving of respect.’
The Studio Exec was unavailable for comment.
