Studio Ghibli is mostly known for making classic anime films such as Castle in Sky, Grave of the Fireflies, My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, and Princess Mononoke. As you can see, they are a talented animation studio that makes amazing movies. Well, they've taken their talent and put together an epic live-action short film called Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo, which features a giant monster attacking Tokyo.
The short was directed by Higuchi Shinji who is known for the Neon Genesis Evangelion series. The project was commissioned by Anno Hideaki, director of the Evangelion series and key animator on Miyazaki Hayao's Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind, for the Tokusatsu Special Effects Museum in Tokyo. What makes this short even more awesome is the fact that Miyazaki himself created the design for the giant creature. This is the first live action movie that has been produced by Studio Ghibli, and it's the first step to seeing them make a feature film. Hopefully it happens soon because this thing turned out so cool! Watch it now!
