After announcing plans for a My Neighbor Totoro-influenced theme park to open in 2020, Studio Ghibli has now given a look at plans for the attraction. The first images of the park show a range of features of the park, all of which are depicted in the studio’s iconic style.
Key attractions will reportedly include a gate reminiscent of the 19th-century structures in Howl’s Moving Castle, as well as a recreated antique shop from Whisper of the Heart and a Princess Mononoke-themed village. The My Neighbor Totoro influence will still be clear, with “Dondoko Forest” — a Totoro-themed area named after the “dondoko dance” from the movie — and the inclusion of a house from the film, which was originally built in 2005. Take a look at the plan above, with the opening date pushed back to 2022.
