GKIDS has released an official English-dubbed trailer for Earwig and the Witch. The first film from Studio Ghibli to be completely CG-animated. Let’s see how it looks below.
Huh, I am torn. The story looks good, but the animation leaves a lot to be desired. Studio Ghibli is known for their beautiful traditionally animated films, so the CG feels off. The faces look like something out of an early Pixar movie. I also feel like it is very reminiscent of, or inspired by, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Or do all young witches have talking cats?
The English dub version features the voices of Taylor Paige Henderson, Vanessa Marshall, Kacey Musgraves, Richard E. Grant, and Dan Stevens.
Earwig and the Witch will air in Japan on December 30, 2020. It will be released in North America early 2021.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
