Ghibli has published a new trailer for the 3D anime Earwig and the Witch from Goro Miyazaki, Hayao’s son. This is the first 3D project of a well-known studio.
The plot is dedicated to a girl named Irvig. She lives in an orphanage, which has become her home, but one day everything changes – the heroine has adoptive parents who took her to their eerie mystical home. Despite the fact that the adoptive mother turns out to be a witch, together with the talking cat, Irvig is determined to become the master of new circumstances.
The story is based on the novel of the same name by the British writer Diana Wynn Jones. This is the second work of the author to be filmed by Ghibli. The first was Howl’s Moving Castle.
In Japan, Earwig and the Witch will be released on December 30th.
