Stacking blocks on top of each other has never made us so Ghibli inside.
The open world of Minecraft allows the player to build anything their mind can dream of. Famous buildings, beautiful parks and a host of other famous real and fictional places have already been built and players aren’t finished crafting yet.
One particular Minecrafter has been setting their sights on the worlds of Studio Ghibli and the results are so magical that they would surely get the approval of any of the staff at the acclaimed animation studio.
YouTuber and Minecraft pro Pero recently released this video showing the Toxic Jungle and a terrifying Ohm from Nausciaa of the Valley of the Wind. Paired with the music from the movie, it may take you by surprise at how alive and real the scene feels. You almost expect the Ohm’s eyes to suddenly turn red and for it to come crashing forward. Fellow builders have given Pero high praise for how seamless and beautiful his work is.
Pero has made other worlds from the works of Studio Ghibli, including Cat Bus from My Neighbor Totoro and the great Nightwalker from Princess Mononoke. Like his Nausicaa piece, his earlier work is also incredibly real and organic, especially when you remember it’s made from nothing but blocks.
There are still plenty more Ghibli worlds that Pero can create, so as long as he puts the same amount of care and effort into them we definitely want to see them made. Keep stacking those blocks, Pero!
