Cartoon Production Information:

Rumored to be director Hayao Miyazaki's last film.

Miyazaki based the five-year-old boy of the story on his grandson, the son of "Tales From Earthsea" director Goro Miyazaki.

Instead of supplementing 2-D animation with even more computer-generated work, as Studio Ghibli had done in recent years, Miyazaki intends to make the new cartoon with a hand-painted look resembling pastel watercolors.

Miyazaki will "go back to his origins and use not any CG," said Studio Ghibli president Toshio Suzuki. "Instead, he will use simple, childlike drawings. He intends to make something different from his previous films."

Ponyo is set by the sea. The setting is inspired by Miyazaki's 2005 stay on Japan's Inland Sea, famous for its scenic views.

Working title: "Untitled Hayao Miyazaki Project.."
