Studio Ghibli is taking a decidedly different approach with their next feature length film, adapting the story of Earwig And The Witch using three dimensional computer graphics versus the standard two dimensional art they've used for their previous efforts and fans are sharing their thoughts on the first images from the movie, both good and bad! With the feature length film releasing a number of images, it's clear that this will be a unique movie in the roster of Ghibli movies to date!
Ghibli has recently been in the news thanks to its inclusion within the roster of movies that make up HBO Max, as well as taking the first steps at creating an amusement park that brings to life some of the legendary studio's biggest movies! It will be interesting to see how the animation of Earwig And The Witch is received when it arrives later this year!
What do you think of the first images from the upcoming Studio Ghibli movie? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Ghibli!

Excited But Nostalgicprevnext
That's why I thought the key visual of Earwig and the witch is very Ghibli-ish. It sends the strong message that this is not about a cure girl doing cute things. It will be about a girl who can overcome any adversities on her own strength. Compare this with a Disney poster. pic.twitter.com/36SRaZ7lJY— Kenta praises anime (@AnimePraises) June 20, 2020
Stylized And Unique
Earwig and The Witch was one of my FAVOURITE books as a kid, and I am so EXCITED for Studio Ghibli to adapt it. The CG looks so stylised and unique, and I can recognise characters from the book already. I'm looking forward to it beyond anything else!!— Stella👩❤️💋👩Marie (@StardustMacaron) June 20, 2020
Earwig Defense Force
Also there is nothing soulless at all about the earwig and the witch characters and it has a far more interesting art style than any disney princess movie bye— 🧚🏽♀️🌸🌱 (@lotobuns) June 20, 2020
