GKIDS has announced that it is working with Fathom Events and independent theater circuits to begin screening Studio Ghibli’s first CG feature Earwig and the Witch, in select theaters in the United States on February 3, 2021. The film will screen in Japanese with English subtitles and in English. HBO Max will begin streaming the film in the United States on February 5, 2021.

The theatrical run will qualify the film for the Oscars.

The story of Earwig and the Witch is described as:

Not every orphan would love living at St. Morwald’s Home for Children, but Earwig does. She gets whatever she wants, whenever she wants it, and it’s been that way since she was dropped on the orphanage doorstep as a baby. But all that changes the day Bella Yaga and the Mandrake come to St. Morwald’s, disguised as foster parents. Earwig is whisked off to their mysterious house full of invisible rooms, potions, and spell books, with magic around every corner. Most children would run in terror from a house like that… but not Earwig. Using her own cleverness—with a lot of help from a talking cat—she decides to show the witch who’s boss.
