This is will (a small) part of the history of cinema, I'm sure. Not because of its greatness. For the sad story of what could have been. Ursula K. Le Guin deserves the best directors in the world fighting to film her novels. And she did have one. Miyazaki. She refused, unfamiliar to anime. And then, when she saw his movies, she said yes. But time passed. And Gorö, not Hayao, did this unspeakable act of destruction.
