NHK posted on Tuesday the first promotional video for Studio Ghibli’s first CG feature Aya and the Witch, Goro Miyazaki’s anime adaptation of Diana Wynne Jones’ novel Earwig and the Witch. The two-minute video is streaming on NHK’s website, which you can check out here.
Goro Miyazaki is directing the anime as the studio’s first full 3D CG feature, and his father and studio co-founder Hayao Miyazaki is credited for the movie’s planning and development. Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki is producing. French distributor Wild Bunch International is serving as the feature’s international sales agent.
The 82-minute feature will air on the NHK General channel on Wednesday, December 30 from 7:30 to 8:53 p.m. The Cannes Film Festival chose the feature as part of its Official Selection this year. GKIDS will release the feature in theaters in North America in early 2021.
