Ghiblis Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo

 Youtube Direktghibli, danke Peazy!

Und dann haut das legendäre japanische Animationsstudio Ghibli seine erste Realverfilmung als Short raus: „Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo“ basiert auf Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, dem allerersten Zeichentrickfilm von Ghibli (noch bevor das Studio eigentlich gegründet wurde). Der Kurzfilm hat noch ein paar weitere Ghibli-Verbindungen, von Twitch:

the short was commissioned by Anno Hideaki, the director of landmark anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion and to be directed by Higuchi Shinji, one of Anno’s key Evangelion artists. As intriguing as the Eva connection is, however, the real hook lies farther back in Anno’s past. All the way back to the beginning, in fact, to the days when Anno cut his teeth as a fledgling animator working under Miyazaki Hayao as a key animator on Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind.

Yes, Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo has a direct Miyazaki connection. Two of them, in fact. First, Miyazaki himself provided the design for the creature. And, second, the short now stands as the first live action work produced directly by Miyazaki’s Studio Ghibli.
