Earwig And The Witch: A New Studio Ghibli Film Is Dropping On Netflix

Earwig And The Witch: A New Studio Ghibli Film Is Dropping On Netflix

The film is the first fully 3D CGI feature from the legendary studio.

Studio Ghibli fans, get excited.

The legendary film studio, known for titles such as Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro, is releasing its first fully 3D CGI feature on Netflix next month.

You can watch a clip below.


Titled Earwig And The Witch, the film follows a witch, who leaves her child, Earwig, at St. Morwald's Home for Children.

Earwig grows up in the home with her pal, Custard, and while she’s enjoying her time there, the 10-year-old finds herself adopted against her will by an especially odd couple - Bella Yaga and Mandrake.

Earwig is abandoned by her mother (
Bella Yaga tells Earwig that she is a witch, and that she only adopted Earwig for "an extra pair of hands" to help around the house. Earwig agrees to help, only if Bella Yaga teaches her magic in return. However, Bella Yaga isn’t particularly forthcoming, refusing to teach Earwig magic and gets Mandrake to seal the exits so Earwig can’t escape.

Earwig then makes a new friend, and together, the pair decide to work together to teach Bella Yaga a lesson.

The Netflix UK and Ireland Twitter account shared the news, announcing Earwig and the Witch will be joining the 21 other Studio Ghibli titles already on the streaming service on November 18th.

Fans were quick to express their excitement about the new title, quickly taking to the comments.

“I can’t wait to see this, Studio Ghibli always put out such magical stories,” one person wrote.

In other Netflix news, fans have laid praise at The Guilty, the streaming service’s latest thriller flick.

A remake of the 2018 Danish film of the same name, The Guilty stars Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal as troubled police detective Joe Baylor, who finds himself forced to overseeing 911 operator duty. When he receives a call from a highly distressed caller, Joe finds himself having to scramble to save them – while a series of other revelations come to light.

It’s an intense thriller, with almost the entirety of the action based in just one room – and fans lapped it up.
