Other Details
He is often referred to a the "Walt Disney of Japan." He doesn't like that title. Miyazaki has already proven himself as more of an anime virtuoso than a business entrepreneur.

Sometimes bases his film characters on real people. EX: Spirited Away (2001), Chihiro was based on a daughter of his friend.

"Do everything by hand, even when using the computer."
He allows no more than 10% of footage in his films to be computer generated. He insists that all his characters and backgrounds are drawn by hand.

Many of his films were not available in America due to the original poor English language version of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984), which cut roughly 20 to 30 minutes of time, changed character names and diluted the film's themes. Miyazaki was very upset over this poor handling that he soon refused to give the distribution rights to anyone who did not agree to follow a more strict translation of the Japanese dialogue and not remove any scenes. Walt Disney Studios eventually agreed to these terms and have been steadily releasing his films ever since, including a new English language version of Nausicaä that restores the lost footage and plays at its proper length.
