Trailer Reactions: The Tale of Princess Kaguya (2014)Animation Japanese Cinema Trailer Reactions Trailers
This is my trailer reaction to Studio Ghibli's The Tale of Princess Kaguya from the Co-founder of the company, Isao Takahata. We are so used to seeing Ghibli films by Miyazaki but this time, we get a glimpse at the other is based on a very popular 10th century Japanese folktale that is basically known to every Japanese child. The story centers around a Princess Kaguya who was discovered as a baby by an old man who sells bamboo. When Kaguya grows up, 4 men from prestigious families propose and Kaguya asks them to find memorable marriage gifts. The premise sounds like a rom-com but paired with the intensity of the soundtrack and the beautiful fluidity of the animation style, we just might have a hauntingly mesmerizing story on our hands. The Tale of Princess Kaguya already came out in Japan last year but it will hit US Theaters starting October 17th! It looks incredible! I cannot wait for it to come out!
