Directed by Gorô Miyazaki, this full-length animated feature from Studio Ghibli revolves around 10-year old Earwig, a precocious child who grew up in a unique orphanage where children can practically do things that are always forbidden of them. She was abandoned by her witch mother, but another witch, Bella Yaga, later adopts her. When she is taken to Bella’s home, she finds out that she will serve as an assistant. Hardheaded Earwig agrees to abide by house rules if Bella teaches her how to do magic. Adapted from the novel by Diana Wynne Jones.~Olivia Cantor

Earwig and the Witch [Limited Edition] [SteelBook] [Blu-ray/DVD] 
I loved this movie. The artwork was great and the story was both delightful and very different. If you are comparing it to the rest of Studio Ghibli some might be disappointed, but that is comparing apples and oranges. The whole style is clean and fresh, if you just watch it and enjoy the ride. I think you will enjoy it as must as I did.
This new film of studio ghibli is a bit different. I personally did not like the 3D image of this film, but it is a good story. This particular film is made by Hayaos Miyazakis son who wanted to try going 3D rather than 2D water color image.
I would recommend this to a friend

Perfect Kid’s movie.
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
Now we are talking. Finally a new decent and fun kid’s flick from giblei. Haven’t seen this since poppy hill or a great kid’s flick since Kiki. Don’t listen to the critics. Earwig is a great show and really hits with a fantastic point fir kids and adults. Act nice if you want to influence people.
