The Tale of Princess Kaguya

"As beautiful and imaginative as anything Ghibli has yet created!" Our friends at SlashFilm have unveiled a brand new 60-second teaser trailer for Studio Ghibli's The Tale of Princess Kaguya', from director Isao Takahata, which was originally released in Japan late 2013. The film is adapted from a 10th century Japanese folktale and is animated in the style of Chōjū-jinbutsu-giga scrolls - essentially it's unlike anything you've seen before, and this teaser plays up how gorgeous that animation looks. The trailer is for the dubbed US version with an English voice cast lead by Chloë Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Darren Criss, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges and James Marsden. This is a short, simple but stunning teaser - check it out.

Here's the first US teaser for Studio Ghibli's The Tale of Princess Kaguya', debuted by SlashFilm:

Studio Ghibli's The Tale of Princess Kaguya, or Kaguyahime no monogatari in Japanese, is based on the popular 10th century Japanese folktale Taketori Monogatari (or The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter). The story, "known by virtually every Japanese child," is about around a princess named Kaguya discovered as a baby by an old man who sells bamboo inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant. When Kaguya grows up, 5 men from prestigious families propose and Kaguya asks them to find memorable marriage gifts. Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata wrote the script and is directing, his latest since directing My Neighbors the Yamadas in 1999. As seen in the teaser, the film will be in the style of the classical Japanese scroll Chōjū-jinbutsu-giga. Princess Kaguya will be released in US theaters starting October 17th this fall from GKids.

    I don't know, the animation looks little odd.

    Seems like a digitally painted version, though the Yamadas had some amazing rough line drawn parts too.

    Looks similar to the video game OKAMI. Which I loved. This looks totally diggable!

      Okami had such great graphics, I only know it from the art book, but this is defo on that vibe.

        Yeah. It was one of the first games I really truly fell in love with.
