"What if Hollywood was Moe?"
Many anime fans have wondered what a MOE Hollywood would look like. It's an age-old question that was supposed to get answered in 2020, but after a delay to March 19, 2021, and then again to a June 4 opening. We finally got a glimpse into the exciting world of Moe Hollywood, Nyallywood, during the Fantasia International Film Festival in August.
But, things don't just stop there. GKIDS just announced that they will be bringing Pompo: The Cinéphile to the North American Studios in 2022.

The movie will have a Japanese dub with English subtitles and will be featuring a B movie Nyallywood Producer who looks like a little girl.
Joelle Davidovich, also known as "Pompo" Pomponette" is a talented producer famous for making movies that anyone can enjoy. But when her assistant, Gene, comes across a new movie script and expresses his desire to bring it to the Cinemas as soon as possible. Pompo gives her assistant a once-in-a-lifetime chance to direct the movie, as a new actress Natalie arrives in Nyallywood and catches Pompo's attention.
Takayuki Hirao, known for The Garden of Sinners Movie 5 and God eater, has directed the new movie at Studio CLAP. It is a relatively new studio, and the only notable works they have at the time of writing is Kono Sekai no Tanoshimikata: Secret Story Film.
