First Teaser For Studio Ghibli’s ‘Princess Kaguya,’ From ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ Director

Written by on July 11, 2013 

Following 2008’s Ponyo, Studio Ghibili have released two feature films in the last five years, but in 2013, they’ll be debuting another two works, coming from a pair of their most-talented directors. We’ve heard a great deal about Hayao Miyazaki‘s The Wind Rises, which is getting a Japanese release in nine days, but now our first look at their following film has arrived.

The next film by Grave of the Fireflies director Isao Takahata is titled The Tale of Princess Kaguya (Kaguya-hime no Monogatari) and follows a bamboo cutter, Taketori no Okina, who slices open a stalk to find a thumb-sized baby inside. But not just any thumb-sized baby inside a stalk of bamboo, rather one who grows into a princess. This first teaser is quite brief, but shows off the warm visual style and our characters. Check it out below.

What do you think of our first teaser?
