Grogu, meet Totoro. Tonight famous animation house Studio Ghibli — best known for movies like Spirited Away and My neighbor Totoro – confirmed his new Star Wars project called Discover Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunnies and is described as a ‘hand-drawn animation’. There aren’t many other details about it, but that’s not too bad, because you’ll be able to see for yourself soon: it starts streaming on Disney Plus on November 12.
This isn’t Lucasfilm’s first foray into Japanese animation. The first season of Star Wars Visions, an anthology featuring some of the biggest names in anime, debuted on Disney Plus last year. “We wanted to showcase different Japanese studios, not just industry giants,” Visions producer Kanako Shirasaki said: The edge in 2021. “We wanted to choose studios from different backgrounds, who wanted to tell different stories in different styles.” A second season is in the works.
