They've overused the "young boy/girl encounters a magical/fantastical situation" setting far too much. It's made so many great results but the studio feels rather pigeonholed. At the same time The Wind Rises was okay but wasn't that good of a sign of where Ghibli could go.
So I'm not sure really what would help them besides more of the same stuff they always do while trying to outdo themselves (which is really hard considering their portfolio). I'm not sure anyone really knows what they should do; after all if there was a clear answer they would probably be trying it already. Maybe a far-future scifi setting, or a very-different-from-usual mecha show/movie or something.
>>136062482 He's right honestly, there is literally no reason to save the studio. Anime studios come and go, they really are just a name. It's all the same people. I want go as far as to say that Ghibli has only made one movie, but all of their movies undeniably follow a similar theme, and contain similar characters. This isn't necessarily bad, in fact, it's fairly common. However, this means that there is really only one type of film they can make, and there really isn't much more room to explore it creatively.
tl;dr Miyazaki is right, all things must pass, Ghibli is dead and it's time to let go.
