Studio Ghibli released today (17) two new official images of “Aya and the Witch”, its first 3D animation.
The film will arrive in international theaters on December 30, still not scheduled to arrive in Brazil.
Based on the children’s novel “Earwig and the Witch” by Diana Wynne Jones, the feature film is directed by Goro Miyazaki, son of the legendary Hayao Miyazaki.
It should be remembered that Wynn Jones also wrote “The Animated Castle”, a book which was adapted in 2004 by Hayao.
In the story, Earwig lives in an orphanage – and even loves it, until she is adopted by a witch and taken to a haunted house. However, instead of being horrified, the smart girl is determined to become the mistress of her new situation.
In the studio version, the young woman’s name was changed to Aya, but the extent of the narrative criticism is unknown.
The cast consists of Shinobu Terajima, Etsushi Toyokawa and Kokoro Hirasawa.
Having made many titles available in the Netflix catalog, Studio Ghibli is one of the greatest animation empires in history and owns some of the genre’s masterpieces – including “ My Totoro Friend, ” ‘Tomb of Fireflies’, ‘Princess Mononoke’, ‘Spirited Away’ and most recently ‘Marnie’s Memories’.
