Reportedly, the movie will be based on Genzaburo Yoshino's 1937 novel about a 15-year-old boy named Junichi Honda aka Koperu, as he deals with spiritual growth, poverty, and the overall experience as a human being.

Miyazaki previously announced his retirement in 2013, following the release of "The Wind Rises".

However, back in 2016, he announced that he would be returning to adapt one of his favourite books for the big screen.
