Ghibli Museum Will Start Showing Boro The Caterpillar on March 21st 

Hayao Miyazaki’s 14-minute 20-second short film Kemushi no Boro/Boro the Caterpillar will be featured at Ghibli Museum’s Doseiza (Saturn) Theater from March 21st in Mitaka, Tokyo as reported by Ghibli Museum’s official website. Tickets for this exclusive screening will go on sale on February 10th. This anime will be the 10th film screened at the museum’s theater. 

 Boro the Caterpillar will be among Miyazaki’s last films. The filmmaker has previously stated in October of last year that he will work on one last film before his retirement. His final film is based on Genzaburo Yoshino’s 1937 book Kimi-tachi wa Do Ikiru ka (How Do You Live?). This picture could take three to four years to make.

Kemushi no Boro/Boro The Caterpillar Story:

Just before dawn, Boro the Caterpillar hatched from an egg among patches of scrub grass. Looking around for the first time, he noticed the brilliance of the morning sun and a deliciousness in the air. Boro lowered himself down from the borogiku  (groundsel), and stepped out into the world of caterpillars and caterpillars’ enemies.
