Not sure how many people know this but Miyazaki once wanted to do an anime adaptation of Pippi Longstocking in the 70s

whitepool:

but it was dropped because they couldn’t get permission from the original creator

BUT HOT DAYUM AT THE CONCEPT ART IT’S LITERALLY THE CUTEST THING…

(also the protagonist of Panda go panda was probably based on her design)

almost as good as knowing that Tim Burton could not go through with his film adaptation of Mai: the Magical Girl with a Sparks soundtrack.
