Published Jun 01, 2017If you're a Studio Ghibli fan, it's looking like 2020 will be your year. Ahead of Tokyo hosting the Summer Olympic Games, the beloved animation studio is making all sorts of plans. Not only is there a new movie called Boro the Caterpillar in the works (as well as some job opportunities on said movie), but the studio has now announced plans to open an official My Neighbor Totoro park.
According to Variety, Studio Ghibli are planning to open the park on a 200-hectare land plot in Nagoya's Aichi Prefecture. The site was previously used for Expo 2005.
It's unclear how much the park will cost, or exactly what the studio's plans entail, but it will be open in the summer of 2020. Here's hoping they take some inspiration from Disney artist John Ramirez's jaw-dropping theme park plans.
Studio Ghibli already has a museum in the Tokyo suburb of Mitaka.
