Hayao Miyazaki… What might have been...

Harry Knowles over at has scored some truly breathtaking footage of what is apparently some test animation that was created by Hayao Miyazaki for a proposed “Adventures in Slumberland starring Little Nemo” film. As it happens the film was never made, but if this footage is the real deal, and I trust Harry that it is, then this could have really been something. It’s got all the hallmarks of great Miyazaki : a beautiful eye for detail along with airplanes and magical flight. Very reminiscent of his work on “Laputa” I think.

See for yourself over at
