Anime industry legend Hayao Miyazaki was meant to retire with The Wind Rises, and it would have been more than a worthy send-off for the veteran anime creator.

Jiro Horikoshi always dreamed of becoming a pilot, but thanks to his nearsightedness he can’t follow his dream. One night, as Jiro dreams of flying, he is met by the famous Italian aeronautical engineer Giovanni Battista Caproni that it is better to build planes than fly them. Taken by these words, Jiro makes it his life mission to become an engineer and to design planes for the Japanese Empire.

Fired from his job, a dead beat father, and a heavy drinker, life has not been good to Johnny Lawrence the past 30 years.

When long time, and successful karate rival, Daniel LaRusso, discover that Cobra Kai has reopened, it reignites the feud between them.
