Hayao Miyazaki, the genius behind "Spirited Away," is coming out of retirement for one more movie.

Great artists don't stay in retirement for very long. After Dave Chappelle's highly acclaimed performance as SNL host this past weekend, more news of an un-retirement have surfaced. Hayao Miyazaki, the writer and director behind "My Neigbor Totoro" and "Spirited Away," has announced that he'll be leaving his golden life of leisure behind to make one more feature film. That film, titled "Kemushi No Boro" ("Boro The Caterpillar" in English) will take four to five years to be released. Hayao Miyazaki announced his retirement from film in 2013.

Hayao Miyazaki has reportedly been planning to make this film for 20 years. The protagonist of the film is "a tiny, hairy caterpillar, so tiny that it may be easily squished between your fingers." Expect something spectacular.
