Studio Ghibli Reveals 'Earwig & The Witch' Release Date

The latest Studio Ghibli film, Earwig and the Witch, has just been given an official release date!

The upcoming animated film will debut in theaters on February 3rd, before also premiering on HBO Max on February 5th.

“We are thrilled to be bringing Goro Miyazaki’s magical new film to North American audiences next month,” GKIDS president Dave Jesteadt, said in a statement. “Earwig and the Witch is the first new Studio Ghibli release in four years, and is the studio’s first foray into computer animation. Working together with HBO Max, Fathom Events, and other theatrical partners will enable GKIDS to bring this wonderful film to the widest possible audience.”

Here’s a synopsis: Growing up in an orphanage in the British countryside, Earwig has no idea that her mother had magical powers. Her life changes dramatically when a strange couple takes her in, and she is forced to live with a selfish witch. As the headstrong young girl sets out to uncover the secrets of her new guardians, she discovers a world of spells and potions, and a mysterious song that may be the key to finding the family she has always wanted.

Earwig and the Witch stars the voices of Kacey Musgraves, Dan Stevens, Richard E Grant and Taylor Paige Henderson.

Kacey also sings the English version of the film’s theme song “Don’t Disturb Me,” which you can listen to here!

If you didn’t already know, there are currently 21 other Studio Ghibli films to stream on HBO Max, include The Secret World of Arietty, which features the voices of Bridgit Mendler and David Henrie, and Ponyo, starring Noah Cyrus and Frankie Jonas.

Dan Stevens Was SO Excited to Film This 'Beauty and the Beast' Scene

Dan Stevens Was SO Excited to Film This 'Beauty and the Beast' Scene

Actor Dan Stevens did an amazing job making the Beast come to life on-screen in the new Beauty and the Beast film!

While we knew Emma Watson would connect with her bookish character (she has spoken out about the meaning of Belle’s love for books in interviews) it turns out Dan understood the Beast’s literary proclivities as well.

During a Twitter Q&A Monday morning, Dan revealed to Entertainment Weekly that the library was his favorite scene to recreate.

“My favorite set to recreate was the library – I was excited to get to step into the real Beast’s library,” he said.

We can’t blame him — gifting Belle with a library remains one of the most romantic gestures in Disney movies to date.

Emma Watson Says Belle's Love of Books Has a Deep Meaning

Emma Watson wants her character Belle in her upcoming film Beauty and the Beast to put a spotlight on some important issues.

The 26-year-old actress stepped out at a screening of the film on Monday night (March 13) in New York City.

She was joined by Dan Stevens, Josh Gad, Josh Groban, Audra McDonald, Stanley Tucci and Ewan McGregor.

Emma recently opened up about how her character Belle’s love of books holds an important hidden meaning.

“[Books are] so powerful and they have the ability to change your life and your outlook, and this story really speaks to that, the sacred nature of books and their ability to transport you and empower you,” she told Mashable.

Emma added, “We still live in a world where there are probably over 80 million girls who won’t get to go to school just because of their gender.”

FYI: Emma is wearing Christopher Kane.

Emma Watson Discusses the Queer Sensibility of 'Beauty & The Beast'

Emma Watson Discusses the Queer Sensibility of 'Beauty & The Beast'

Emma Watson looks as stunning as ever while posing with Beauty and the Beast leading man Dan Stevens for the cover of Attitude magazine‘s April 2017 issue.

The 26-year-old actress opened up to the mag about the queer sensibility of the Disney musical. Here is what she and her co-star had to share with the mag:

Emma on the film’s queer sensibility: “I think it was really important actually for Dan and I to develop and understand why each of our characters feel like they don’t fit in. I certainly felt watching the original that I wanted to know more about why Belle feels that she’s different and why she wants to be different and why she’s naturally different.”

Dan on why the lead characters are so popular with gay men: “It’s about that sense of persecution. Belle is seen as a bit of a freak within her community, this girl who reads and invents things and is a bit too clever for the local Establishment. And Beast is obviously persecuted because of his appearance.”
