London: Hollywood couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are set to work together for the first time in Japanese filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki`s final movie.

The married stars, who are expecting their first child together next year, will team up for animated movie `The Wind Rises`, reported Daily Express.

The historical fantasy film was a hit when it was released in Japan earlier this year, and now director-writer Miyazaki is bringing the movie to English-speaking audiences.

Krasinski will voice lead character Jiro Horikoshi, who designed Japan`s World War Ii fighter planes, with Blunt as his love interest.

Other celebrities adding their voices to the film are Elijah Wood and Stanley Tucci, who is married to Blunt`s sister, Felicity.

Miyazaki announced `The Wind Rises` would be his last movie shortly after its original release over the summer.
