In 2015, an illustrator named Takumi imagined the possibility of what a Studio Ghibi theme park would be like.
All the lands and attractions pulled from all of Miyazaki’s films. At first many thought this would be a genuine theme park, only to be disappointed that it was just an idea that would never come to fruition, until now.
While this whole theme park is not to be built, news has spread that a brand new Studio Ghibli theme park is in the works. The theme park, which will showcase the movie My Neighbor Totoro will be built in the Aichi Prefecture at Aichi’s Expo park. The park already hosted the World’s Fair in 2005, where during that year they built a replica of Satzuki and Mei’s house from the same movie.
The park is not set to open until 2020, so hopefully I’ll be able to afford a trip to go!
