Hayao Miyazaki is a filmmaker of various animated feature films. He was born January 5th, 1941 in Tokyo, Japan. The protagonists of Miyazaki's films are often played by female roles that demonstrate courage, independence, and inner-beauty.

Miyazaki's work was unheard of until Miramax released his anime film "Princess Mononoke" in 1997. After this release, Miyazaki created another anime film-- "Spirited Away", and this was the first anime film to win an Academy Award. "Howl's Moving Castle" was also nominated.

Miyazaki's films are very dreamlike and lyrical. His stories are relatable, and attract a wide range of audiences.
