|WHO IS STUDIO GHIBLI?|
Studio Ghibli is an animation studio based in Japan. It was set up by animator Hayao Miyazaki and film maker Isao Takahata in 1985 for 'Tenkyuu no Shiro Rapyuta' (Laputa: Castle in the Sky). However the studio had earlier beginnings with 'Kaze no Tani no Naushika' (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind) in 1983, which was based on a manga by Miyazaki.
The studio has consistently produced high quality films and is one of the leading animation studios in the world. [MORE GHIBLI FILMS]
ABOUT THE MASCOT
Totoro hails from the movie 'Tonari no Totoro' (My Neighbour Totoro). It is a forest spirit and was adopted as mascot for the company after the movie earned the studio financial success in its early days. There are in fact 3 Totoros: Oh-Totoro (Large Totoro), Chuu-Totoro (Medium Totoro) and Chibi-Totoro (Small Totoro). However when we say 'Totoro' we usually refer to Oh-Totoro. 'Totoro' is mispronounciation of the word 'troll' by the 4-year old protagonist in the film.
