Studio Ghibli, Goro Miyazaki, and GKIDS Films have given excited anime fans a special treat with a peek at the English version of Earwig and the Witch! The scene is the opening for the film and features Kacey Musgraves as Earwig’s mother!

Growing up in an orphanage in the British countryside, Earwig has no idea that her mother had magical powers. Her life changes dramatically when a strange couple takes her in, and she is forced to live with a selfish witch. As the headstrong young girl sets out to uncover the secrets of her new guardians, she discovers a world of spells and potions, and a mysterious song that may be the key to finding the family she has always wanted.

Earwig and the Witch is directed by Goro Miyazaki with planning from Hayao Miyazaki. The film’s animation was done by the anime fan-favorite Studio Ghibli and was produced by the studio’s co-founder Toshio Suzuki. It is Studio Ghibli’s first 3DCG animated feature and is based on Diana Wynne Jones novel by the same name.

Earwig and the Witch will screen in select theaters starting February 3rd, before being made available to stream on HBO Max starting February 5th. Head here to learn more.
