Studio Ghibli’s latest departs from tradition as they make their first computer-animated feature.


Growing up in an orphanage in the British countryside, Earwig has no idea that her mother had magical powers. Her life changes dramatically when a strange couple takes her in, and she is forced to live with a selfish witch. As the headstrong young girl sets out to uncover the secrets of her new guardians, she discovers a world of spells and potions, and a mysterious song that may be the key to finding the family she has always wanted.


This is a studio that has turned out some truly beautiful traditional 2D animation through the years. Its style is so iconic you recognise it instantly when you see it. Ghibli films are often closer to moving portraits than films. Their characters and aesthetics are frequently more important than the plot. Ghibli fans love the studio largely in part because Ghibli films are so good at drawing you into their atmosphere, their landscapes and their sensory details. Earwig honours this tradition in many respects but it’s also an improbable, odd, frequently puzzling love letter to young rebellion, rock music and broken families.
