The first trailer has been uploaded for Studio Ponoc’s debut film, Mary and the Witch’s Flower!
Studio Ponoc was founded in April 2015 shortly after Studio Ghibli’s production halt. Many former Ghibli animators and staff members left to help found it. Their first film, Mary and the Witch’s Flower, is based on the children’s novel, The Little Broomstick, written by Mary Stewart.
The trailer previews the film’s animation, plot, and the theme song, “Fly-by-Night”. The film’s staff include Riko Sakaguchi and Hiromasa Yonebashi as screenplay writers, Takatsuugu Muramatsu in charge of music, Yoshiaki Nishimura as producer, and Hiromasa Yonebashi as director.
