First Footage From Ghibli’s “Ronia” TV Series

Acclaimed Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli (“Spirited Away,” “Ponyo”) make their first foray into television later this year with the animated series “Ronia the Robber’s Daughter” based on the novel by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren.

In a change for Ghibli, the series is a 3D computer animated series though it retains a good portion of the company’s signature hand-drawn look. Still, the move to CG has understandably upset some of the long-time faithful.
