We mourn the loss of Isao Takahata, a brilliant director whose vital contributions to animation will never be forgotten.
We are deeply saddened to learn Isao Takahata has passed away. Mr. Takahata was a visionary and one of the most sensitive, thoughtful and penetrating filmmakers... working in any medium. We have been incredibly honored to work with him. Our deepest sympathies are with Mr. Takahata’s family and the entire Studio Ghibli staff.
