GKIDS is releasing in the U.S. the next English-dubbed film from Studio Ghibli, The Tale of Princess Kaguya. Directed by Isao Takahata, the hand-drawn animated films looks visually stunning and one-of-a-kind.
Here’s the film’s summary courtesy of Slash Film:
Legendary Studio Ghibli cofounder Isao Takahata (‘Grave of the Fireflies,’ ‘Pom Poko’) revisits Japan’s most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making. Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter (James Caan) and his wife (Mary Steenburgen), a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady (Chloë Grace Moretz). The mysterious young princess enthralls all who encounter her – but ultimately she must confront her fate, the punishment for her crime.
The Tale of Princess Kaguya begins its U.S. run on October 17th.
