    The future of Studio Ghibli has been uncertain for the past few years, but producer and Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki has continually assured fans that the beloved animation studio will continue to exist while taking on projects that differ from what they have taken on in the past.

    This time, Studio Ghibli has brought to life centuries-old black-and-white drawings of animals frolicking in the wild for energy company Marubeni Shin Denryoku.

    The 30-second animation takes design cues from the picture scrolls widely considered to be the earliest examples of manga in Japanese history called Choju Jinbutsu Giga, or Scrolls of Frolicking Animals.
