Hayao Miyazaki (宮崎 駿), born January 5, 1941 in Tokyo, is a Japanese animator and film director. Among his best-known animated films are Castle in the Sky (1986), Princess Mononoke (1997, won Picture of the Year at the Japanese Academy Awards), and Spirited Away (2001), the first anime movie to win American Academy Award. Miyazaki's films are mostly fantasy-oriented and feature recurrent themes such as the relationship between humanity and environment. Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of the Final Fantasy series, cited Miyazaki's work as inspiration for some of the themes and elements in his games.
