Hayao Miyazaki is one of the most fascinating figures in animation and his Studio Ghibli work is even more magical. A new documentary will explore the intriguing life and work of the Studio Ghibli co-founder, which was filmed in 2013 right after Miyazaki stated that he would retire.

The doc goes behind-the-scenes to take a look at his creative process. "He imposes himself to become a slave of the film," filmmaker Kaku Arakawa said. "He makes himself and everyone who works for the film contribute 100 per cent."

Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki will air on Japan's NHK WORLD TV on June 3 and 4. But as of now, you can check out the trailer below.
