Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro comes to life with ingenious lasercut paper set from Studio Ghibli

Out of all the Studio Ghibli films, My Neighbor Totoro remains one of the most beloved, with the tale of two young girls and their magical forest friends capturing hearts and imaginations around the world.
