According to this official Facebook post, it will air in Japan starting on August 31, 2o14.
Here’s more from Animation Magazine…
Studio Ghibli and Japan’s Polygon Pictures are joining forces to produce an animated TV series called Ronia, The Robber’s Daughter, based on the novel by Pippi Longstocking author Astrid Lindgren.
Goro Miyazaki, whose credits include the anime features Tales from Earthsea and From Up on Poppy Hill, will direct the series, his first TV venture. Polygon will handle animation production.
Now, this technically isn’t the first anime series by Studio Ghibli — or at least several prominent members of Studio Ghibli. The anime adaptation of ‘Anne of Green Gables’ was very popular back in the day.
Definitely looking forward to this one. How about you?
