Buena Vista Home Entertainment has posted the trailer for Naohisa Inoue and Studio Ghibli's Iblard Jikan video in Windows Media format at 1Mb, 500kb, and 56kb speeds, as well as in Real Media format at 500kb and 56kb speeds, on its new website. Iblard is the imaginary world depicted in Inoue's paintings, which Ghibli has animated with selective digital animation. Inoue's Iblard art inspired the fantasy storybook sequences in Whisper of the Heart. Buena Vista will release Iblard Jikan on July 4 (the same date as Tales from Earthsea) on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
In related news, Ghibli background artist Kazuo Oga will exhibit his work at the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Tokyo from July 21 to September 30. Oga created background art for almost every Hayao Miyazaki work from My Neighbor Totoro to Spirited Away. NTV is hosting a website on the exhibit for "the man who drew the forest of Totoro."
