Japanese animation film studio, Studio Ghibli --- best known for its anime feature films such as Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro, as well as producing several other short films and television commercials -- is delving on opening a dedicated theme park that is scheduled to open in early 2020, according to producer Toshio Suzuki, reports Polygon.
The theme park will be based on the aforementioned film My Neighbor Totoro, which tells the tale of the two young daughters (Satsuki and Mei) of a professor and their interactions with friendly wood spirits in postwar rural Japan. The movie was written and directed by Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki in 1988 and it's acclaimed as one of the most successful films to be released by the animation studio.
Suggested to be located in Aichi's Expo Park in Nagoya, Japan -- the Expo Park already has a recreation of Satsuki and Mei's house. Additionally, any plans on expanding the new park to include other beloved titles by Studio Ghibli have not been announced.
Furthermore, Ghibli fans can currently travel to the Ghibli Museum, which is located in an area of west Tokyo called Mitaka, but the upcoming 200-acre theme park will be the largest installation that Ghibli will construct so far.
