Sneak peek to studio Ghibli’s new film “Aya and the witch”



For the past 36 years, the legendary movie studio and lauded genius Hayao Miyazaki, have stuck to an unmistakable hand drawn aesthetic. Even as Disney pivoted to 3D animation for all of their films (they haven’t released a traditionally animated film in over nine years), Ghibli stuck to their style.

But that seems about to change. The latest film, directed by Goro Miyazaki, son of Hayao, is a departure to CGI style. And looks like it’s animated entirely in 3D.

Based on the book by Howl’s Moving Castle author Diana Wynne Jones, tells the story of an orphaned girl named Aya whose adopted parents wind up being sorcerers. Aya moves into her new home and finds that it’s haunted by spirits and ghouls.

Much of the traditional Ghibli aesthetic remains. Some fans are divided on the new look, but there’s nothing to suggest this will become the new normal. After all, Ghibli lovers' appetites, unlike those who’ve engaged with Western animation like Disney’s, have consistently shown their love for the traditional way of how they make animated movies. If anything, this feels like a flashy, temporary detour before normal service resumes.

The film, which was due to bow at Cannes Film Festival last month, will be aired on Japanese television later in 2020.
