Kiyofumi Nakajima is the new President of Studio Ghibli, according to Variety. Nakajima has replaced Koji Hoshino, who was appointed president of the company in 2008. Hoshino is now Ghibli’s Chairman.
This move comes with two big operations underway. Hayao Miyazaki is directing a new feature film, titled Kimi-tachi wa Do Ikiru ka, which translates to How Do You Live?
Along with Ghibli producing a movie, the company is creating a new theme park in Japan which is set to open as early as 2020. The announcement of this park has been made, although no other details are known.
