Hayao Miyazaki is an Oscar winning animator, director, and producer from Japan best known for his beautifully hand-drawn animation films that captured hearts around the world .
“You must see with eyes unclouded by hate. See the good in that which is evil, and the evil in that which is good. Pledge yourself to neither side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two.”

Attend Gakushuin University and graduated from Gakushuin in 1963 with degrees in political science and economics.
His interest in animation was sparked by the film "The Tale of the White Serpent", (also know as "Panda and the Magacal Serpent") released in 1958, by Shin Uehara.
A number of Western authors have influenced Miyazaki's work, including:
Ursula K. Le Guin
and Diana Wynne Jones
John Lasseter, director of Pixar's A Bug's Life and the Toy Story series, calls the works of Miyazaki "the most inspirational films" for him, especially in directing Toy Story.
Barry Cook and Tony Bancroft, directors of Disney's Mulan ("Miyazaki is like a God to us")
Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise, directors of Beauty and the Beast and The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Glen Keane, Disney's supervising animator for characters like Ariel, the Beast, Pocahontas, and Aladdin.
Paul Dini, the writer and producer of various animated Batman and Superman TV series, TV specials and films in the 1990s, regards Miyazaki as "terrific," "phenomenal," and "a filmmaker who just transcends live-action and animation."
Pete Docter, director of the popular films Up and Monsters, Inc. as well as a co-creator of other Pixar works, has praised Miyazaki and described him as an influence.
During World War II, Miyazaki's father, Katsuji, was director of Miyazaki Airplane, owned by his brother (Hayao Miyazaki's uncle). During this time, Miyazaki developed a lifelong fascination with aviation (his signature style in almost all his films).

Hayao Miyazaki has become one of the forerunners of Japanese animation. Fellow animator Stan Lee, writing for Time magazine, said of him,
"In the field of theatrical animation, where talent abounds and everyone has his or her own style, the art and creativity of Hayao Miyazaki are unrivaled. For decades, he has arguably been Japan's leading cult figure to fans of manga (comic books) and anime (animated films)—in a nation where those art forms are held in the highest regard."

David Ansen of Newsweek said of the animator, "Hayao Miyazaki seems to be one of those artists (and there aren't many) who just can't fail to make magic."
Jean Giraud (Moebius) named his daughter Nausicaa after Miyazaki's heroine.
Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino have cited Miyazaki's work as having the biggest influence on the universe and style of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
For the beautiful flying sequence of an eagle in Rescuers Down Under, director Hendel Butoy, who regards Miyazaki as "the greatest animator," was inspired by the breathtaking flying scenes that are the signature of Miyazaki's films.
