If you're an anime fan, you've likely seen one of Hayao Miyazaki's animated films. The Oscar winner and former head of Studio Ghibli, announced his retirement a few years ago but has decided to join the fray one last time for an unnamed final project.

Miyazaki is now looking for animators to help him bring the film to fruition, with production set to start in October this year. Don't expect to see the film on the big screen anytime soon though, with the project estimated to last three years.

Studio Ghibli has recently posted an advertisement looking for animators from all over the world to join Miyazaki's team in Tokyo, with the job said to pay roughly ¥200 000 (R23 700), along with biannual bonuses, according to Hypebeast.

Watch Miyazaki receive his Honorary Oscar Award from 2014 in the video below.
