Up until now Japan animation master Hayao Miyazaki‘s latest film didn’t have a U.S. home — though it has already secured a world premiere slot at the Venice Film Festival and a North American premiere in Toronto after that. Disney said today it will handle North American theatrical distribution of the Studio Ghibli title, to be released under the Touchstone Pictures banner. No U.S. release date was announced. The deal continues the studio’s release relationship with Miyazaki’s company that includes The Secret World Of Arrietty, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle and Spirited Away. Toho released Wind Rises in July in Japan, where the film featuring a mix of the real-life stories of aircraft designer Jiro Horikoshi and poet Tatsuo Hori was a hit.
