A 2011 passion project that combines Minecraft with the world of Hayao Miyazaki, animator Alan Becker‘s GhibliCraft is now “a huge team effort, with over 100 volunteer builders, command block engineers, and plugin developers pitching in their talent.”
The magical 2016 video above is a cinematic tour of Totoro’s world in Minecraft, as conscientiously recreated on Becker’s server. My Neighbor Totoro is Studio Ghibli‘s beloved 1988 anime film.
Becker is also well-known for his 2006 viral video Animator vs. Animation. Watch more GhibliCraft videos on Becker’s YouTube channel and follow GhibliCraft on Instagram.
