The first new work by acclaimed anime director Hayao Miyazaki in five years will be offered in an extremely limited release from March 21 at the Ghibli Museum, Mitaka, in western Tokyo.

The 14-minute, 20-second short anime, titled "Boro the Caterpillar," will be Miyazaki's first original piece since the 2013 release of his anime movie "The Wind Rises."

According to Studio Ghibli officials, Miyazaki, 77, has for many years wanted to create a work that saw the world through the eyes of an insect. Part of the short anime has been created using computer graphics. The original idea for the work as well as the script are by Miyazaki.

The anime will be shown only at the Saturn Theater within the museum.

Tickets to the museum can be purchased through the online ticket service provided by Lawson Inc., the convenience store operator. All tickets have designated dates and times for entry and cost 1,000 yen ($9) for adults and college students.

March tickets will go on sale from Feb. 10.
