If you’ve always wanted to take a selfie with No-Face or walk into the forest to visit Totoro, then good news: You might just get that chance here in Hong Kong this coming August.

For years, Studio Ghibli — the Japanese animation studio behind these characters and founded by filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki — has been wowing audiences with beautifully animated masterpieces that feature fantastical worlds, lovable characters, and stories that resonate with young and old alike.

From August 3 to November 3, Miyazaki lovers will be able to visit this exhibition that will feature 3D models of iconic scenes taken from the studio’s beloved films, bringing its traditional pencil and paper illustrations and animated graphics to life.

The exhibition will be split into eight sections, each one dedicated to one of the studio’s films: My Neighbour Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Pom Poko, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle.

Organizers say that Studio Ghibli merchandise will also be available, some of which will be “Hong Kong exclusive products.”
