Studio Ghibli reveals first glimpse of its new film (and fans aren’t happy)

When Studio Ghibli announced its first film in six years a few weeks back, fans were shocked to hear that it would be made entirely using CGI. This marked a huge departure for a studio that was, until now, renowned for its hand-drawn aesthetics. We’ve now been given our first glimpse at the visuals (below) for 2020’s Aya and the Witch – and fans aren’t happy.

Directed by Goro Miyazaki, son of Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki, the film is set to air on Japanese channel NHK this winter. It is based on children’s book Earwig and the Witch by Diana Wynne Jones, in which an orphan girl named Aya is adopted by a witch and taken to an unsettling new home.
