Porco Rosso

Around 2010, there were stated to be plans for a sequel to Porco Rosso titled Porco Rosso: The Last Sortie that would have been set in the Spanish Civil War and would have been directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi and written by Miyazaki. However, these plans never came to fruition, seemingly stuck in Development Hell. It was never actually a production in the first place. Miyazaki stated in the original interview that doing the story was simply a hobby of his, never saying anything about it being made into a film. The claim that Hiromasa Yonebayashi would be directing it is also false, as it comes from a profile of him on The Guardian,[1] with no sources to back up the info. Miyazaki had expressed interest in and played around with the concept of a sequel, it was never meant to be anything more than a concept.
