Concept Art From the Miyazaki Pippi Longstocking Movie That Could Have Been

I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

[View All on One Page]

Pippi Longstocking, that freckle-faced redhead girl you oughta know, is very close to my heart. I dressed up as her one year for Halloween. Pipe cleaners in my pigtails. That costume was rad (aren’t I adorable?). Anyway, all this is to say that my hair ears perked up when I read about how Hayao Miyazaki wanted to make a Pippi movie back in 1971. Only he didn’t get to, because creator Astrid Lindgren was all “Thanks, but no thanks.”

The Miyazaki and Studio GHBLI Livejournal has a whole slew of concept art for the might-have-been film. Look and be sad.
