"The Wind Rises," the movie that Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki has said will be his last, will get an Oscar-qualifying run in November, the Walt Disney Studios and Studio Ghibli announced Wednesday at the Toronto International Film Festival.

"The Wind Rises" ("Kaze Tachinu") will open for a week in New York and Los Angeles Nov. 8-14, with a limited U.S. release to follow in 2014 on Feb. 21 and expanded release Feb. 28 under Disney's Touchstone Pictures banner.

Miyazaki's first directorial effort in five years, "The Wind Rises" chronicles the real-life story of Japanese aircraft designer Jiro Horikoshi, following him through his country's massive 1923 earthquake, tuberculosis epidemic and descent into World War II.
