Titled Aya to Majo (Aya and the Witch), the movie won’t play in theaters but rather will air on NHK in Japan this winter. There is no word yet on when it will be shown internationally.

Hayao Miyazaki is overseeing the adaptation’s planning, while his son Goro, who helmed From Up On Poppy Hill, is directing. Toshio Suzuki is producing.
