Studio Ghibli Teases a Mysterious Team-Up With Lucasfilm, But What Could It Be?
Studio Ghibli, the studio behind classics like Spirited Away and Ponyo, has just officially announced a mysterious partnership with Lucasfilm. The announcement is as cryptic and as Ghibliesque as it could possibly get, but that hasn’t stopped us from trying to figure it out.
The announcement is as cryptic as it could get, as it is just a soundless video of the Lucasfilm logo immediately followed by the iconic logo of Studio Ghibli. One can only speculate, but the most likely scenario is a "Star Wars" project from the house of Totoro, which opens more than a few options.
It could be a movie (possibly a cute, slice-of-life story with a dash of fantasy a la "My Neighbor Totoro" set in the galaxy far, far away) or a TV show (maybe a segment of the upcoming second season of "Star Wars: Visions”). Whatever the case, the prospect of seeing Totoro's face on the screen right before a Lucasfilm project is very exciting.
