Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Grave of the Fireflies, Howl’s Moving Castle…these are just a few of the wonderful worlds that Studio Ghibli has brought us through their fantastic animated films. And now, all thanks to modern technology, you can now actually feel like you’ve stepped inside the world of your favorite Ghibli movie.
How? Through virtual reality, of course! Recent years have seen the development and rise to popularity of virtual reality headsets that give you an even more engaging experience into gaming and entertainment. And now you can have that experience with your favorite Studio Ghibli films too.
It is only in its demo phase for now, and there are only 3 scenes so far you can experience—the Boiler Room from Spirited Away, the Meadow from Howl’s Moving Castle, and the Bus Stop scene from My Neighbor Totoro. But still. To see Totoro right before you?? That’s still awesome.
Check out the awesome video demos here:
