The animation studio has teased the forthcoming attraction, alongside a replica of a Princess Mononoke-inspired village
Last year, Studio Ghibli announced that its eponymous theme park is on track to open its doors in 2022. Now, as construction continues on the park, the iconic animation studio has shared a preview of a couple of the coming attractions.
More specifically, Studio Ghibli has previewed a real-life – although, sadly, motionless – replica of the magic, walking castle from Hayao Miyazaki’s 2004 film, Howl’s Moving Castle. The attraction will inhabit one of five zones across the park in Japan’s Aichi Prefecture, including a ‘Big Ghibli Warehouse’ with exhibition spaces and a theatre.
Each of these areas – which will showcase installations of Ghibli’s fantastical spirits – were previously teased in 2018, in illustrations of the proposed plans released by the local government.
