If you’ve seen or read Harry Potter, you’ll probably be familiar with how things such as newspapers and paintings move in that magical world. Wouldn’t it be awesome if those were for real? Imagine having a glimpse of a movie trailer packed within a movie poster!
We’re not here to discuss Harry Potter today though. A hardcore Studio Ghibli fan recently cast their own magic on the world-famous Studio Ghibli productions, creating some amazing animated “movie posters” that took our breath away! See them after the break!
Prelude to Wind is a Tumblr blog dedicated entirely to the enthralling world of Studio Ghibli works. We’re not sure if the creator of these GIF images knows any magic, but we know for sure that they’re a massive fan of Studio Ghibli productions!
What we love best about this series of GIFs is that the creator not only covered the international box-office hit films, they’ve also given the less famous titles the same amount of love! Without further ado, here are the promised brilliant “movie posters”, in chronological order:
▼ Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984)
▼ Laputa: Castle in the Sky (1986)
▼ Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
▼ My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
