Studio Ghibli - All films on Netflix

To be honest, it looks under rendered and cheap. My daughter is a big fan of How To Train Your Dragon, both the films and the spin-off series on Netflix. The spin-off series clearly use the same models as the movies, but it's like playing a PC game with the detail turned down for your old graphics card - worse textures, less lighting, fewer shaders etc.

 

That's the feel I get from this trailer. The designs are good, the expressions etc are classic Ghibli, but the rendering quality is TV spinoff, not movie, and that's selling the whole thing short.

Christ that sounds bad - it’s like a poor fan dub. Although there is one great moment where it sounds like one of the milquemockney characters says ‘In this arsehole there is one rule that’s crucial’.

 

I’m warming to the look of it though. Obviously it would be better in the trad style, but for what it is it’s got something.

I still don't want to believe that's Ghibli.

 

Maybe it's a kind of snobbery for hand-drawn stuff but I get no pleasure from looking at that. Maybe there is still great care and attention to detail, but the characters don't move right. I mean they don't move like humans.

 

Defintely not the target market though I guess.

Same here. Looks absolutely uninspired.

When Ghibli starts doing CGI movies, you know cartoons (read: traditional hand-drawn animation) are on their way out  :(

Miyazaki's coming out of retirement. Again. To make a movie of Genzaburo Yoshino’s 1937 book How Do You Live? Apparently one of his favourite books. It's about a teenage boy who moves in with his uncle after his father dies. Suzuki describes the movie as "fantasy on a grand scale".

Miyazaki's retirement is fantasy on a grand scale.

I thought he'd pretty much finished this one. I was under the impression it's been in production for ages.

Multi-award-wining composer Joe Hisaishi and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) are readying a stage adaptation of Miyazaki Hayao’s beloved 1988 Studio Ghibli film “My Neighbor Totoro.” It will open at London’s Barbican arts complex this fall in collaboration with Improbable and Nippon TV.

Hisaishi was the original composer of the film.

The global premiere of Studio Ghibli's My Neighbour Totoro comes to London's Barbican stage this autumn.

 

The celebrated 1988 animated feature film by Hayao Miyazaki will be brought to the stage by its original composer Joe Hisaishi in a landmark new adaptation by the RSC written by playwright Tom Morton-Smith.

 

This enchanting coming-of-age story explores the magical fantasy world of childhood and the transformative power of imagination, as it follows one extraordinary summer in the lives of sisters Satsuki and Mei.

 

My Neighbour Totoro will play a strictly limited 15-week season from 8 October 2022 - 21 January 2023 and promises to delight all generations.

I doubt it will sell out, but those Ticketmaster prices are higher than direct from Barbican. I'm a resident if anyone is desperate to order before they got on general sale. Got my tickets for opening night.
