Mary and the Witch’s Flower will be Studio Ponoc’s first animated feature and might be considered good news for fans of Studio Ghibli.

Studio Ponoc was formed in 2015 by former Ghibli producers and animators Yoshiaki Nishimura and Hiromasa Yonebayashi as well as a bunch of other ex- Ghibli animators. Which explains why this movie looks so much like former Ghibli movies.

The movie itself is based off The Little Broomstick by the author Mary Stewart and is set to arrive in 2017.
