We didn't have to wait too long-- Disney+ has made an official announcement about the project that Studio Ghibli's twitter account teased earlier this week, and it's even cuter than we had hoped. Plus, it's going to be available for Star Wars fans to enjoy tomorrow!

'Zen - Grogu and Dust Bunnies,' a new original animated short film created by Studio Ghibli, will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on November 12 in celebration of the third anniversary of Disney+ and the debut of the Disney+ original series the Mandalorian.

While we don't know exactly what the short film will be about, the meditative tone of the title and the beautifully simplistic poster art promises a chill (and assuredly adorable) time. 'Zen - Grogu and Dust Bunnies' is directed by Katsuya Kondo (animation director of Ponyo) with music from The Mandalorian and Black Panther composer, Ludwig Göransson.
