Few things are sacred in this world, but if you'd asked us last year, we'd have said Studio Ghibli's traditional hand-drawn style was one of them. That all changed with this year's announcement of the studio's first ever all-CGI film, Earwig and the Witch. The first trailer had just dropped, and it seems fans aren't convinced by the new look.
