Not only that, we can also tell you that the confirmed release date for the film in UK & Ireland is May 18, 2018. The new family anime from Hiromasa Yonebayashi is the first feature film produced by Studio Ponoc, founded by Studio Ghibli veterans Yonebayashi and Yoshiaki Nishimura
Studio Ponoc has made Mary and The Witch’s Flower featuring the same lush and evocative animation Studio Ghibli was so legendary for, carrying the torch forward into another generation.
Mary and The Witch’s Flower combines an exhilarating tale with the unique richness, art and animation of Studio Ghibli-style storytelling, revealing the exciting and surprising adventure of Mary, an ordinary twelve-year-old girl. Bored and lonely during a summer holiday, Mary follows an odd cat into the nearby woods where she stumbles upon a flower and then a little broomstick. Together the flower and broomstick whisk her above the clouds, far away to Endor College – a school of magic!
At Endor, Mary tells a lie that leads to peril, and then a promise, while discovering that all is not as it seems at the school – there are experiments that horrify! Soon she confronts great danger, and a test of her resolve.
