Studio Ghibli is in hibernation for the moment, largely shut down although Hayao Miyazaki has said he plans to do another feature length film, this time a documentary about making the animation Boro the Caterpillar. But a bunch of former Studio Ghibli talent have gathered together under the brand new banner of Studio Ponoc, and have released the first teaser trailer for their first animation, Mary and the Witch’s Flower. Producers, directors, animators and writers of some of the most iconic animations of the last 40 years have placed their bet that people will want to continue watching what they can do. I certainly look forward to when this one makes it to the theaters next year, and we find out if they retain the magic touch they developed at Studio Ghibli. For a more detailed look at the new studio and project, watch the Tokyosaurus video after the trailer.
