Japanese film maker Hayao Miyazaki loves Rosemary Sutcliff books

Rosemary Sutcliff‘s books are loved by Hayao Miyazaki, who is one of Japan’s foremost living fantasy film-makers. In the 1980s and 90s his animations were huge hits at the Japanese box-office. Princess Mononoke was the biggest-earning Japanese film ever. Miyazaki is on record as a fan of the historical novels of Rosemary Sutcliff. Miyazaki’s films have been noted for their strong, self-reliant heroines, so I dream of him adapting Song for a Dark Queen!
