Pippi Longstocking

I don't know if you have already heard about this, but Miyazaki and Takahata had once (in the 70s) wanted to make an anime feature adaptation of Pippi Longstocking. The name would have been: Pippi Longstocking, The Strongest Girl In The World (長靴下のピッピ 世界一強い女の子).
Below are pictures of Miyazaki's watercolour storyboards. The making of the film was dropped because the original creator didn't give them permission to make the film. Then Miyazaki and Takahata weren't as known to the world as they are now. I believe that if they requested to do the film now there will be no objections. But there's probably no interest anymore. It would have been really wonderful adaptation from the pictures I can see.
