Japan’s Studio Ghilbi is back in action–to produce films, at least. The studio is co-producing French animator Michael Dudok de Wit’s first feature film, The Red Turtle, set to premier at the Cannes Film Festival this year.

According to sources such as Twitch Film, Ghibli legend Hayao Miyazaki is a fan of de Wit’s work, and he requested Ghibli to contact him. To learn more about The Red Turtle, read this piece from the Animation Scoop

If you are one of the lucky few to attend it the 2015 Cannes Film Festival this year (May 13-24), make this film a must watch.
