Studio Ghibli has posted a short, cryptic video on its official Twitter account featuring its animated logo introduction with the logo of Lucasfilm. Ghibli has offered no other details regarding this collaboration, but hints that something is in the works between both companies.
Lucasfilm has recently been involved in the production of Star Wars: Visions, which features several animated shorts from Trigger, Kinema Citrus, Kamikaze Douga, Science SARU, Production I.G, and Geno Studio. The anthology series will release its upcoming “Volume Two” follow-up in Spring 2023.
Lucasfilm, which is owned by Walt Disney Studios, is most famous for producing the long-running Stars Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. It was founded by Star Wars creator George Lucas in 1971.
Studio Ghibli, which had some of its films re-dubbed into English and released by Disney, is now releasing its films on home video through GKIDS in North America. The distributor also frequently screens the film theatrically each year.
HBO Max picked up the streaming rights for Studio Ghibli’s films in the U.S. in 2020. Netflix, in a partnership with Wild Bunch International, also streamed Studio Ghibli films worldwide except for the United States and Japan that same year.
