Earwig and the Witch is coming to Netflix
To announce it, with a trailer, was the same giant of video streaming, which had already brought the film on the platform in Japan and the USA for several weeks and, from the next November 14, will also make it available in the Old Continent.
Earwig and the Witch, Studio Ghibli’s first 3D computer graphic film, is coming to Netflix. Watch the official trailer for this magical film directed by Goro Miyazaki (Poppy Hill).
Here is the trailer:
Here is the official synopsis of the film, based on the novel of the same name by Diana Wynne Jones (former author of the book “Howl’s Moving Castle”):
Not all orphans would love to live in St. Morwald’s Home for Children, but Earwig would. She always gets whatever she wants, whenever she wants it, and has been that way ever since she was left on the doorstep of the orphanage as a child.
But everything changes the day Bella Yaga and Mandrake arrive at the St. Morwald orphanage, pretending to be adoptive parents.
Earwig is thus entrusted to them and taken to their mysterious house full of invisible rooms, potions and spell books, with magic around every corner.
Most kids would run away in terror from a house like that… but not Earwig. Using her intelligence, also aided by a talking cat, she decides to show the witch who is really in charge.
The film was directed by Goro Miyazaki, son of the great master Hayao Miyazaki who is also the founder of Studio Ghibli together with Isao Takahata, Toshio Suzuki and Yasuyoshi Tokuma.
