So this is Ghibli's 2nd adaptation based on a western work.

Fifth, actually. Aside from this movie, Howl's Moving Castle, Tales from Earthsea, Arrietty and When Marnie Was There were all based on books by western authors.

Yeah this was a sure GKids get, as is Hayao's upcoming film.
Can't say I'm intrested in this at all, as none of Goro Miyazaki's films I have particularly liked, though I am glad Ghibli is experimenting with 3DCG. I'd love to see them playing with even further animation styles too, though I doubt it.

A telefilm goes to the big screen in North America. Get ready for animation errors in longshots!

This is definitely their second time adapting Diana Wynne Jones' work though. I hope this means Ghibli is back to making movies again beyond Miyazaki's upcoming film. I do wonder if this was always planned to be broadcast on TV or did COVID19 change any plans?

I think it's the former. If the movie was planned to be released in theaters, then the release date would've most likely been delayed instead of the movie moving to a TV broadcast.

If you re-read the earlier part of my post, maybe you'd get it.
