A first look at Studio Ghibli’s upcoming theme park has just surfaced. Set for a Fall 2022 opening in Expo Memorial Park in Nagakute, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, the theme park will incorporate attractions from cult Ghibli classics like Princess Mononoke, My Neighbour Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Howl’s Moving Castle, to name a few.

While there is still quite some work to be done until its official opening, images have been released showing some key locations, giving fans a rough idea of what the installations will look like. The two main attractions revealed are Howl’s Castle, which will stand 16 meters in height, and the “Mononoke no Sato” (Mononoke’s village), a forest attraction inspired by Princess Mononoke‘s Irontown.

Overall, the Studio Ghibli theme park will cost roughly $323 million USD to complete but is sure to be worth every penny to fans of the animated films.
