Studio Ghibli-Nemo Promo

It appears that at one point Studio Ghibli was going to animate a Little Nemo movie. (Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl's Moving Castle, and my fave Spirited Away) Unfortunately budget and schedules prevented this from happening. However this clip has shown up that Studio Ghibli animated as a test for the movie. Magical, Gorgeous, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G stuff. This was done in 1984.

I know Mai!! It would have been fantastic. Another company did make one. But I saw it SOOO long ago that I don't remember it. The articles say they patterned their flying sequences after the Ghibli ones. May bear a Netflix rental. (Assuming it's on DVD.)
