Watch a scene from Studio Ghibli's Little Nemo movie that never was

We love ourselves some Studio Ghibli around these parts, so it breaks our heart to see this unused pitch for a Ghibli-helmed Little Nemo in Dreamland. The studio's animators put it together in 1984, but Ghibli never developed the project in full.

A Japanese Little Nemo movie was released in 1989, but we would have love to have seen this Nausicaäfied Nemo.

Wow. I was always impressed by the one that was made ("Nemo in Slumberland"'), but I would kill to have seen this in its place. Watching the opening sequence, it seems pretty obvious that the makers of Slumberland had seen this piece, even if both were based on the same story.
