HBO Max has released a serene and relaxing video featuring scenes from Studio Ghibli’s famous films.
The 30-minute video highlights some of the most peaceful segments from the animation studio’s classic movies, such as My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle and Kiki’s Delivery Service. The imagery, which include clouds rolling, people working in rice fields, characters resting or sleeping, are accompanied with soothing sounds of birds chirping and rustling leaves in the wind.
The clip, which opens to the sound of water rippling and insects chirping, blurs the lines between fantasy and reality as you witness the clouds floating and the Howl’s castle drifting through the alps. The video provides visuals and sound effects for over six minutes, and then loops in a seamless transition to create a stunning animated screensaver.
