His film Spirited Away, released in 2001, was seen by one-third of Japan's population and became the nation's highest-grossing film ever (topping Titanic). His filmography also includes Princess Mononoke, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Porco Rosso, The Cat Returns, My Neighbor Totoro, and many more.
His son, Gorō Miyazaki, has since made his own foray into directing at Studio Ghibli; his first release being 2006's "Tales of Earthsea", which he both wrote and directed.
