Turner Classic Movies will honor animator Hayao Miyazaki, one of Japan's most celebrated filmmakers, throughout the month of January.

Every Thursday throughout the month, the network will air a film from “the Walt Disney of Japan,” first in its English-dubbed format, then in an encore presented with the original Japanese-language track.

TCM’s salute to Miyazaki will kick off Jan. 5 with 2002’s Spirited Away, for which the director won an Oscar for “Best Animated Film.”
