Watch the teaser for Studio Ghibli film ‘The Princess of Kaguya’


We recently reported that Studio Ghibli may be very close to shutting its doors, but they may yet be closing on a brilliant high note. Coming to America October 17 is The Tale of Princess Kaguya, the latest film by Ghibli’s other resident master, Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies, Pom Poko). The film is the story of a tiny princess found in a bamboo stalk, and already the film looks remarkably distinctive in a scrappy, rough, hand-drawn animated style that looks unique even for Ghibli. While the film was already released in Japan last year, GKids will release the American version starring James Caan, Mary Steenburgen and Chloe Moretz.
