Not Yet Tombow, though it's being directed by Miyazaki's son. By the way they're having a fight. It seems that he's more into his work then his family, which sadly happens to most directors. His son is going to keep making the film even though his dad says it's not that good. -__-
*Many comments coming from other thread as well*

Ara~! i just watched Grave of The Fireflies a couple of weeks ago, that has to be by far the best Miyazaki film ever! i <3 it so very much and it's so sad though ;_; my Grandma did'nt like it though she said it was TOO sad. And yeah it was sadly but now Grave of The Fireflies is my favorite, Howl's moving Catle the 2nd and Spirted Away my 3rd
I'm sorry to disapoint you, but Grave is not one of Miyazaki's films. It was directed by his co director and friend, Isao Takahata. You can find more about it Here.
Anyway, for me my favorites of his works are Spirited, then Howl (I felt the book was better) followed by porto Rossa and Lupin's Castle of C. (which I still need to get).
A side note to fans that were saying that Disney steals things. To be frank, both directors stole things. Well not technically stole. Most of Miyazaki's works come off of legends and folklore much like Disney using fairytales and books in the states. And it should be noted that, unlike Miyazaki, Disney hasn't shyed away from showing relations in the animal kingdom. And before someone brings up the Lionking, I should note that the writer Osamu Tezuka's works were influenced by Disney's works. I should also note that his family never sued Disney, and believe me it wouldn't be an uphill battle considering the influence Mr.Tezuka's name has. The way I see it, if there is borrowing it's no more then Osamu Tezuka using Snow white as a bit of a model for his Shojo stories.
i love miyazaki's films i first watched Spirited Away, which is one of my favorites Then I saw Castle in the Sky, which I also totally love Then i saw Princess Mononoke, which i didn't like so much.... sorry to all of the Princess Mononoke fans And the last one I saw was Howl's Moving Castle, which is my favorite movie EVER!!!!
I think Miyazaki's films are so unique and different and cool and awesomely drawn, and that's why I love Miyazaki's films!!

I've seen My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, and Howl's Moving Castle. All wonderful animated films.
Attention Manga Lust fans: Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction. In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

I have seen Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, The Cat returns. I own all three of them.
I really like Haku in his Dragon form, it taught me how to Draw the Eastern Dragons. The Cat returns is one of the funniest I know. Howl's moving Castle is awesome too, but I think it's sometimes a bit boring, they should have cut some scenes.
