Studio Ghibli’s many fans across the globe will be excited to find out that Hayao Miyazaki’s iconic outfit has decided to open an official theme park in Japan. It was rumored and promised for years that something like this would happen. It was finally confirmed officially this week that Ghibli will indeed be building a theme park in Japan.
Ghibli will team up with the Aichi Prefecture’s government on this project as well as the Chunichi Shimbun newspaper to build the park. While Ghibli merchandise is currently sold by Disney Parks and Walt Disney Pictures had once distributed the studio’s films in the United States as well, this theme park is not going to have an affiliation with Disney’s location in Japan.
