Legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki ("Spirited Away," "Ponyo") is developing his first ever direct sequel for his Studio Ghibli company reports Cut Magazine via Nausicaa.Net.

The slightly disappointing news is that it's to one of his weaker films, the still utterly entertaining 1992 high-flying adventure "Porco Rosso". That film followed an Italian World War I fighter pilot who was transformed into a pig by a magical curse and now works as a bounty hunter protecting ships in the Adriatic Sea from roving gangs of flying pirates.

The sequel, entitled "Porco Rosso: The Last Sortie", will be set during the Spanish Civil War and for a change will have a male character as the film's protagonist. The original's leading characters were the pig-faced Porco and a young female aircraft engineer.

No word as yet on when the film could score a release. Ghibli's next film, "The Borrower Arrietty", opened last month in Japan though a U.S. release date hasn't been set.
