The studio that created classic animated films like the oscar winning Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and My Neighbor Totoro is shooting for a 2020 opening.
RocketNews24 reports that Aichi Prefecture EXPO Park in Nagakute City, already the site of Satsuki and Mei’s house from Totoro, will be turned into a fully realized Hayao Miyazaki fantasy world. The best part is the park’s green infrastructure won’t be touched. This will definitely add to the magic of the famed director and studio’s films. Japan already has a must see Studio Ghibli Museum located in Tokyo.
