‘Minecraft’ Gets Amazing Fan Made Studio Ghibli Movie Map From Oz Workshop [Video]
Despite the fact that they’re sometimes loaded with monsters, magic and seeming peril, the animated worlds of Studio Ghibli are among the most inviting in modern cinema. Who among us hasn’t wanted — if only for a moment — to visit each of the films’ serene (and sometimes post-apocalyptic) landscapes? Oz Workshop has made this dream a partial reality for Minecraft players, who can now enter a massive Ghibli-themed map replete with all the cubey goodness of Kiki’s Delivery Service, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Porco Rosso and more. See it in action after the jump.While Oz Workshop is only reporting in at 90% completion of the map, Minecrafters still seem to have a tremendous map to download for free at their Planet Minecraft site. Looking through what’s available so far, it’s kind of hard to imagine what the final product will feel like.
Provided you download the map schematic to explore, you’ll likely want to populate it with custom character skins from each film. Or you can just show up as yourself. I’m sure Totoro and the Catbus will take you as you are.
