Full disclosure: typically information is so obscure, that there isn’t even precise information to report but. And but, even the merest trace of potential information on the horizon might be so tantalising that it calls for to be trumpeted as loudly as potential. All of which is to say that, we do not know what’s occurring, however the official Studio Ghibli Twitter account (sure, it’s the precise official one and never some joker who’s simply signed as much as Twitter Blue) has shared a brief cryptic video that merely options the twinkling inexperienced Lucasfilm brand, and the crisp basic Totoro-led Studio Ghibli brand back-to-back. Watch it right here:
That’s all we have now to go on proper now – one thing is going on that guarantees a collaboration between probably the most legendary animation homes of all time, and the manufacturing firm behind Star Wars and Indiana Jones (and Willow). What that really is? No concept.
One of the best guess can be a Ghibli Star Wars mission, which is the form of crossover positive to ship your entire web into meltdown. There’s, notably, a second season of animated anthology Star Wars Visions on the best way (the primary season of which consisted completely of shorts created Japanese anime studios). May Ghibli be contributing to the brand new run? (Notably, Visions Season 2 will characteristic animation studios from world wide, and usher in different kinds of animation). Or, might there presumably be a full Star Wars anime film, quick movie, or collection on the best way? There’s each risk, too, that this may very well be an Indy mission within the run as much as Indiana Jones 5 subsequent 12 months – or that it’s one thing to tie in to the approaching Willow collection.
Both means, something new from Ghibli is at all times one thing to be enthusiastic about – and a crossover with any of the worlds of Lucasfilm is particularly intriguing. Or who is aware of, perhaps it may very well be one thing completely unique. Or Lucasfilm taking over live-action diversifications of beloved Studio Ghibli classics. May we be in for a full-on blockbuster model of Princess Mononoke or Spirited Away? We’ll make sure you let you understand when there’s, y’know… precise information on this one.
