Studio Ghibli shared the first images of Goro Miyazaki’s CGI film, Aya and the Witch.
According to Kotaku, Comic Natalie was the first to publish the first pieces of art and photographs of scenes from the film, based on Diana Wynne Jones children’s book, Earwig and the Witch, published in 2011.

With the help of a talking cat, Earwig must use his intelligence to survive in this new magical environment.
Hayao Miyazaki is overseeing the adaptation “project”, while his son, Goro Miyazaki, has taken on the role of director.
