Have you ever wondered what Studio Ghibli‘s work would look like if it were CGI? Thanks to the upcoming release of their new TV anime series Ronia the Robber’s Daughter we may have our answer….er, visual?
Goro Miyazaki has been directing Studio Ghibli’s new TV series Ronia the Robber’s Daughter, which is based on a book by Astrid Lingdren (Pippi Longstocking), and tells the story of a girl who lives in the woods with her father and his clan of thieves and mercenaries.
Thanks to Film School Rejects here’s a quick translation of the narration:
Ronia the Robber’s Daughter. Starting it’s broadcast in October. I want the children to be able to see this.
What seems to be particularly unusual with the trailer is adjusting your eyes and expectations for Studio Ghibli in CGI. While it’s definitely not the worst thing to ever cross the pupils, it’s definitely not exactly what one would expect from a great studio. Then again, it is their first venture into the world of computer animation, let alone the undertaking of an entire TV series. We’ll just have to wait and see how the series turns out as a whole before official critiques can commence.
