New Character Images for Studio Ghibli's The Wind Rises

The Wind Rises is due to debut in Japan on July 20th, and all we've had to go on are four beautiful posters, but no trailer, or even stills. Until now. No, we still don't have a trailer but now we have snapshots of the cast of characters... as well as those providing the voices. This last part is very interesting as we now can see where the animators have gotten their inspiration for the character designs.
Unfortunately, I do not know Japanese to translate the character and voice actor names. But it's still nice to have faces to think about as the film is right around the corner (in Japan at least, still waiting to hear about US and world wide release dates).

In case you missed the new posters, those are included at the bottom thanks to First Showing. Character and actor pictures via Twitch.


  1. Very very well written article, Mayra!

    I can't wait for this movie. It seems so real and gripping.

  2. Thanks! I'm super excited for this. Watching "From Up on Poppy Hill", was a really great starter for the year to come!
