McDonald’s Japan Teases Kiki’s Delivery Service Collaboration

The Japanese McDonald’s Twitter (X) account shared three posts teasing a Kiki’s Delivery Service collaboration. There will likely be toys or a new menu item in the future based on the property.

All the tweets are quite simple, with “This is a delivery” as the only sentence. To be precise, while the art style is similar to Ghibli and the character’s dressed like Kiki (complete with Jiji in the animation with her on the broom), she’s not actually Kiki. The first animation has her flying on a broom with a take-out bag from McDonald’s around the handle. The second one shows her running through a marketplace while holding a bag of groceries.

Previous McDonald’s Japan collaborations include ones with Sanrio and Kirby. Both of these collaborations focused on toys and other small items in the Happy Meals. Sometimes, such as in the case with One Piece, McDonald’s releases limited time menu items.

Kiki’s Delivery Service is an animated fantasy film from Studio Ghibli that came out in 1989. The plot follows a young witch named Kiki, who has a talking black cat named Jiji. She opens up a business in which she delivers goods via broomstick, but when she experiences a personal crisis where she no longer knows what purpose she has in life, she loses both the ability to fly and understand Jiji.

More information on the possible Kiki’s Delivery Service collaboration with McDonald’s Japan will appear later.
