Growing up in an orphanage in the British countryside, Earwig has no idea that her mother had magical powers. Her life changes dramatically when a strange couple takes her in, and she is forced to live with a selfish witch. As the headstrong young girl sets out to uncover the secrets of her new guardians, she discovers a world of spells and potions, and a mysterious song that may be the key to finding the family she has always wanted.
The latest film from Studio Ghibli (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke) is directed by Goro Miyazaki (From Up on Poppy Hill, Tales from Earthsea), with planning on the feature from his father, Academy Award®-winner Hayao Miyazaki, and produced by studio co-founder Toshio Suzuki.
Based on the children’s novel “Earwig and the Witch” by Diana Wynne Jones (Howl’s Moving Castle), the film marks Studio Ghibli’s first entirely 3DCG animated feature. The film was an official selection for the 2020 Cannes Film Festival.
