For the past couple of years, British studio Fire Panda have been working on something that might just sell a few VR headsets to those not currently interested in games: small virtual tours through some of Studio Ghibli’s most famous movies.
Despite Disney and Ghibli being close, this isn’t an official thing. But it’s not strictly a “fan” pipe dream, either.
As the tiny LEGO version of the castle in the sky rotates, a music box beneath is playing the theme tune of the Studio Ghibli classic.
Perhaps, you’ve heard the scary theory that Totoro is really the god of death. Studio Ghibli might deny that (ha!), but there’s no denying that this recut trailer sure is creepy.
Sick of Disney? Anime movies can provide a great alternative for young viewers, opening up new cultures and ideas. However, a lot of anime isn’t for children. Here are five wonderful and age-appropriate anime films that little kids will love.
This is Gimo. It’s a black Scottish Fold. Next to it is Makkuro Kurosuke, a character created by Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki.
Recently, Kotaku reported that a junior high school in Japan was trying to bring Studio Ghibli food to life. There’s a good reason for that. Ghibli food looks freakin’ delicious.
Back in 2014, Studio Ghibli announced it was taking a break. Since then, it’s collaborated with a French animation studio, but hasn’t yet begun work on a new own in-house feature film. That could change as one of the studio’s most promising young directors, who quit Studio Ghibli in 2014, could return for his next…
There’s a long-standing urban legend that part of Princess Mononoke is really about leprosy. Now, the film’s creator, Hayao Miyazaki, confirmed that this was no legend. It’s a fact.
It’s a collaboration that won’t happen anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean one can’t imagine it.
Make no mistake. Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli fame doesn’t seem easy to please—even if you are his son. Rather, especially if you are his son.
Oh hey, another wallpaper-worthy Minecraft build.
