Hayao Miyazaki‘s The Wind Rises is set for limited release in North American theaters on February 21 and will expand a week later, Disney and Studio Ghibli announced tonight. Under the Touchstone Pictures banner, the film also will play Oscar-qualifying engagements in New York and Los Angeles on November 8-14. The Wind Rises — which has been the No. 1 film in Japan for the past eight weeks — made its international debut at the Venice Film Festival this month, where it was revealed that this would be Oscar winner Miyazaki’s last film. The animated pic features a mix of the real-life stories of aircraft designer Jiro Horikoshi and poet Tatsuo Hori. It had its North American premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival.
