Art exhibit and short coming from Hideaki Anno and Ghibli

8:00 AM on 05.10.2012 // Bob Muir

Way before Hideaki Anno wrote and directed Evangelion, he was an animator on Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, working under Hayao Miyazaki and Toshio Suzuki. Now, Anno is teaming up with Studio Ghibli for a new exhibit at the Tokyo Museum of Contemporary Art.

From July 10 to October 8, "Hideaki Anno's Tokusatsu Museum" will show off miniatures, costumes, and special effect tricks used in movies. The project is set to mix together Nausicaä, concern over nuclear energy, and the special effects of tokusatsu media.

In addition, one of Anno's storyboard collaborators, Shinji Higuchi, will be working with Ghibli on a live-action short called "God Warrior Attacks Tokyo." It will feature the God Warrior from Nausicaä attacking the city. Having never read the manga and only seen the anime version a long time ago, I had no idea this is what the God Warrior truly looked like. I remember it just being some big humanoid thing, but if this is its true appearance, I can see where Anno might have got a little inspiration for the Eva units from!
