Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 12.18.2013

Walt Disney Studios has announced via press release the English-language voice cast for the upcoming North American release of Studio Ghibli's The Wind Rises. The film will be released in theaters in North America on February 21, 2014. You can check out the official voice cast below.

The Wind Rises will mark the final feature for acclaimed Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki. He previously announced his retirement last September. The story follows Jiro, who dreams of flying and designing airplanes. Unable to fly due to his nearsightedness, he becomes an accomplished airplane designer and experiences key historical events in an epic tale of love, perseverance, and the challenges of making choices in a chaotic world.

Below is the voice cast for the English version:

  • Joseph Gordon-Levitt lends his voice to Jiro Horikoshi, who harbors strong ambitions to create his own beautiful airplane. A bubbling mix of wild excitement, extreme focus, individualism, pride, realism and idealism, Jiro also has a cool and brilliant mind and is recognized for his talent.
  • John Krasinski provides the voice of Honjo, Jiro's college friend and fellow aviation engineer.
  • Emily Blunt voices Nahoko Satomi, a beautiful and cheerful girl who is a passenger on the same train as Jiro on the day of a natural disaster. Ten years later, they reunite.
  • Martin Short was tapped to portray Kurokawa, Jiro's grumpy boss.
  • Stanley Tucci provides the voice of Caproni, an airplane creator known worldwide from the dawn of Italian aviation through the 1930s, who appears in Jiro's dreams to stir up, advise and voice Jiro's thoughts and emotions.
  • Mandy Patinkin lends his voice to Hattori, the senior designer at Mitsubishi.
  • Werner Herzog voices Castorp, a mysterious visitor to Japan who encounters Jiro at a mountain resort.
  • William H. Macy steps into the role of Satomi, Nahoko's father.
  • Mae Whitman was called on to voice Kayo Horikoshi, Jiro's younger sister, who adores him. Whitman also voices Kinu, Nahoko's caretaker.
  • Jennifer Grey provides the voice of Mrs. Kurokawa.
  • Darren Criss lends his voice to Katayama, a jovial junior engineering colleague of Jiro.
  • Elijah Wood voices Sone, a studious engineering colleague of Jiro.
