It looks like one of the most popular Japanese animation studios in the world may be getting into the Star Wars business based on a tweet released early this morning.

Yes, Studio Ghibli, the studio known for amazing films like Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, and more, teased a collaboration with Lucasfilm with this simple video showing both the Lucasfilm splash screen and their own.

This may come as a shock to some Star Wars fans, but after the success of Star Wars Visions in 2021, it is no surprise that Disney would approach Studio Ghibli to be involved in Visions season 2.

The other possibility, which is highly unlikely, is that Disney and Ghibli have reached an agreement for Ghibli to make a full-length animated Star Wars movie. This would be a huge deal for both Star Wars and Studio Ghibli as Ghibli has only ever worked on original pieces of content and Star Wars has never contracted out a studio to do a full-length feature.

Now that the teaser is out there, it is only a matter of time before a full scale reveal happens. We will keep you updated on this story as more info is released.
