"Porco Rosso" - Miyazaki & Studio Ghibli Tour: Part 2

This is a Japanese animated film (English dubbed) directed by acclaimed filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki (a.k.a. the "Walt Disney of Japanese Animation").

For anyone interested, please join me. I will be waiting near the popcorn stand from 3:45PM-4PM. For those who don't know me, I'll be holding my black Adidas gym bag.

Brief Description from the Metro Guide Feb 2013 Issue:

"The strange Porco Rosso (voiced by Michael Keaton), a former WW1 air ace who was mysteriously turned into a pig-man during the war, now patrols the Adriatic Sea in his custom red airplane while on the hunt for air pirates. When a cocky new pilot named Donald Curtis (voiced by Cary Ewles) enters the fray, Porco is drawn into a love triangle in addition to the many air battles he engages in. Will he come out on top?

Porco Rosso deftly melds the history and aeronautics of the real world with the flights of fancy he is most known for. An homage to the adventure serials that inspired countless filmmakers, Porco Rosso is a boisterous gem."

      Hey Greg,

      The event title is misleading. The film is just called Porco Rosso, meaning that there is not 2 parts to the film. The "Part 2" just means that the Metro had done an event running on showing various Miyazaki films in December (that's the first part of the event).

      Now there showing various Miyazaki films this February that they haven't shown last December (this is second part). One of the films is this - Porco Rosso

      I should have just called this meetup event Porco Rosso
