Watch The Tale of Princess Kaguya's North American trailer

Japan News - Tue, 08/19/2014 - 09:00

Studio Ghibli may be pondering its potentially bleak future right about now, but that doesn't mean it won't be delivering dreams to the screen for people in the meantime.

Case in point: Distributor GKids has just released a trailer for The Tale of Princess Kaguya, the most recent Ghibli film from Director Isao Takahata (he of Grave of the Fireflies among others). And boy, it really doesn't look like the "typical" Ghibli film, does it? 

That's a pretty great thing, mind you. Whatever happens to Ghibli in the future, trailers like this remind us that we'll always have what they did pull out, and that nothing will ever look quite like that wondrous stuff again. The film itself opens in North American on October 17th. Are you planning to see it?
