The new Studio Ghibli theme park looks almost too precious to handle

Japan's Ghibli Park attraction has developed from a surreal dream into reality, and it looks even more adorable than we could have hoped for. Studio Ghibli first announced its concept for a theme park based on the worlds of its animated films back in 2018, and its finally opening on 1 November.

After several delays, most obviously due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Studio Ghibli theme park has announced ticket sales, and it's given us our first glimpse of the park's central attraction, Ghibli's Big Warehouse, which features scenes and characters from fan favourites such as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and The Wind Rises (if you're inspired to create your own characters, see our guide to character design).
