'Princess Kaguya' trailer offers a first listen of the Studio Ghibli film's English dub

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hayao Miyazaki's 2002 fantasy film "Spirited Away" is the only Best Animated Feature winner to be produced outside the English-speaking world. In fairness to the voters who still haven't bestowed Sylvain Chomet with an Oscar, there haven't been that many opportunities for outsiders to power through — the Academy only cemented the category for its 2002 ceremony (making Miyazaki's the only traditionally animated film to ever win the award too). So while the Oscars may not reflect the artistic legacy of Studio Ghibli — currently on a "brief pause" as it figures out how to be a money-making operation without recently retired, Walt Disney-like leader — the company arrives to the 2015 race with a major contender: "Tale of Princess Kaguya." Adapted from a 10th-century Japanese folktale by director and Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata ("Grave of the Fireflies," "My Neighbors the Yamadas"), "Princess Kaguya" is the story of girl discovered in a stalk of bamboo, »

Watch: New Trailer For Studio Ghibli's 'The Tale Of Princess Kaguya' Featuring The Voice Of Chloe Grace Moretz

17 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Following the retirement of animation icon Hayao Miyazaki, the beloved Studio Ghibli may be going through a restructuring process that will limit their output for the foreseeable future, but they’ve still got one more in the chamber, “The Tale of Princess Kaguya.” We all know that American audiences apparently hate to read movies, so the film is getting an English-dubbed makeover courtesy of some big name Hollywood stars, and this version just got a new trailer. Originally released in 2013,  Isao Takahata (“The Grave of the Fireflys”) directed and co-wrote the film, and this marks the legendary animator’s first solo helming effort since 1999. A retelling of the folktale “The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter,” the film tells the story of a magical princess, Kaguya, who is discovered inside a stalk of bamboo, and traces her life from infancy to adulthood in the human world. After its initial release in Japan, »

Director Isao Takahata Talks The Tale Of Princess Kaguya, His Process, the Future of Studio Ghibli, the Popularity of Animation in Japan, and More

16 September 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my personal highlights from this year's Toronto International Film Festival was getting to interview director Isao Takahata for his new film The Tale of Princess Kaguya.  If you're not familiar with his name, Isao Takahata is the co-founder of Studio Ghibli along with Hayao Miyazaki, and he previously directed Only YesterdayPom PokoMy Neighbors the Yamadas, and the war-themed Grave of the Fireflies (which I can't recommend enough).  In his latest movie, which is based on the folktale The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, Takahata breaks away from Ghibli's familiar animation style and tells a story that embraces the connection between nature and magic.  For more on the film, read Matt's review.  The Tale of Princess Kaguya will be released in North America on October 17. During the interview Isao Takahata talked about how he picks his subject matter, how he decided on the look of the film and the style of animation, »

Miyamto Intends To Reveal “Pikmin Short Movies” At A Tokyo Film Festival

11 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Variety is reporting that Nintendo will premiere something called “Pikmin Short Movies” at the upcoming Tokyo International Film Festival. The film is animated, takes place in the Pikmin universe, and is produced by legendary Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto. I love this idea already.

The film will be revealed via presentation, where Miyamoto is slated to be joined by Nobua Kawakami, the “producer-trainer” at Studio Ghibli. Ghibli is renowned for its animated movies in Japan, with its recently-retired founder Hayao Miyazaki often referred to as “the Japanese Walt Disney.” Clearly any collaboration with Ghibli, even just for a presentation, illustrates a mutual respect between Kawakami and Miyamoto.

The Pikmin movie is comprised of three shorts, each with separate titles. The first, called “The Night Juicer,” features Captain Olimar making his favorite flavor of juice, presumably with the help of Pikmin. The second is “Treasure in a Bottle,” in which Olimar and »

Tiff: Hayao Miyazaki's Swan Song

6 September 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel's adventures at Tiff. Day 1

Are documentaries about filmmakers that are at least in part documentaries about the making of particular films, just giant infomercials? Can they ever not be even when they're good? The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness, a documentary about Studio Ghibli in Japan made me desperate to see Miyazaki's final picture The Wind Rises. And I've already seen it! 

Kingdom purports to be about Studio Ghibli but is actually much closer to a profile of Hayao Miyazaki and his regimented and consistent working methods: he works from 11 Am to 9 Pm exactly Mondays through Saturdays; he storyboards all of his movies in chronological order while they're in production (no actual screenplays) so no one, including him, knows how they'll develop and end; his daily routine includes a walk in which he waves to the children of the animators in the in-house nursery and a trip to the »

Toronto 2014: 'The Tale of Princess Kaguya' review

5 September 2014 11:19 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆There's been much discussion this year of the winding down of beloved Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli, with the two founding fathers, Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata, hanging up their pencils. Both found fitting, if unspectacular, ways to bow out; first was Miyazaki with the soaring The Wind Rises (2013) and now Takahata follows suit with the evocative fable, The Tale of Princess Kaguya (Kaguyahime no monogatari, 2013). An appropriately melancholic swansong, it blends the director's prior occupations and provides a perfect canvas for a final visual flourish. Taking Eastern watercolours as inspiration, the aesthetic is impressionistic and painterly with a fluidity that imbues the piece with an intrinsic magic.

Kiki’s Delivery Service (2014) Review

Kiki's Delivery Service (2014) Review Plot73% Acting74% Style, Scenery75% Direction74%Colorful sceneryFun for the whole familyKoshiba's performance might not please everyoneNot all subplots work73%Overall ScoreReader Rating: (2 Votes)81%

I too was quite surprised when I found out that this film was in production. I was even more surprised with the director that was making the film: Japanese master of horror Takashi Shimizu. So let’s get one thing straight right away (even though you probably already noticed): this is no horror film. If you are even only a little bit familiar with Japanese cinema, chances are that you know about Anime; Japanese animation that has taken the world by storm in the last few decades. If you know anything about Anime, you have probably heard of legendary director Hayao Miyazaki and his timeless masterpieces he created for Studio Ghibli. In 1989, Miyazaki released Majo no Takkyūbin, internationally known as Kiki’s Delivery Service. »

Gardner, Crawford Among Academy's Career Achievement Award Non-Winners

Honorary Award: Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth among dozens of women bypassed by the Academy (photo: Honorary Award non-winner Gloria Swanson in ‘Sunset Blvd.’) (See previous post: "Honorary Oscars: Doris Day, Danielle Darrieux Snubbed.") Part three of this four-part article about the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Honorary Award bypassing women basically consists of a long, long — and for the most part quite prestigious — list of deceased women who, some way or other, left their mark on the film world. Some of the names found below are still well known; others were huge in their day, but are now all but forgotten. Yet, just because most people (and the media) suffer from long-term — and even medium-term — memory loss, that doesn’t mean these women were any less deserving of an Honorary Oscar. So, among the distinguished female film professionals in Hollywood and elsewhere who have passed away without receiving »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness’

4 September 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Magic happens here, and though Mami Sunada isn’t the first documentary filmmaker permitted to observe toon maestro Hayao Miyazaki in his creative element (the others have been for TV or homevideo bonus features), she couldn’t have picked a better time: GKids-acquired “Kingdom of Dreams and Magic” observes the making of Miya-san’s final feature, “The Wind Rises,” while elsewhere in the studio, business partner and friendly rival Isao Takahata, struggles to complete his own career capper, “The Tale of Princess Kaguya.”

Though suitable for audiences of all ages, Sunada’s “Kingdom” isn’t so different from the merchandising coming out of Ghibli these days: Yes, kids will be interested, but it’s really aimed at the adult fans. Not until the film’s last 10 minutes, and even then for no more than 40 seconds, does she insert footage from Miyazaki’s incredible oeuvre — a filmography that includes “Spirited Away, »

Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki to receive honorary Oscar

1 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spoiler alert! According to the Wall Street Journal, legendary Japanese filmmaker and Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki will receive an honorary Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in November.

This will mark the second Oscar on Miyazaki’s mantle, the first of which was for his 2001 film Spirited Away, which took home Best Animated Feature Film. Here’s an official statement from the Academy about Miyazaki’s award:

“Miyazaki is an artist, writer, director, producer and three-time Oscar nominee in the Animated Feature Film category, winning in 2002 for Spirited Away. His other nominations were for Howl’s Moving Castle in 2005 and The Wind Rises last year. Miyazaki gained an enormous following in his native Japan for such features as Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Laputa: Castle in the SkyMy Neighbor Totoro and Kiki’s Delivery Service before breaking out internationally in the late 1990s with Princess Mononoke. »

Master Animator Hayao Miyazaki To Receive Honorary Oscar

30 August 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The recently retired Studio Ghibli founder and animation prodigy Hayao Miyazaki, is reported to be receive the honorary award at the sixth annual Governors Awards, on the 8th November 2014.  

Arguably the most respected animator in Japan, Miyazaki broke the hearts of adoring fans as he announced his retirement from the industry last Spetember. At the age of 73, you have to give the guy some credit for his decision as he has been working tirelessly since founding Studio Ghibli in 1985. During that time he has given us amazing films such as Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and Howl’S Moving Castle. 

Other recipients to gain an award this year alongside Miyazaki are French Screenwriter, Jean-Claude Carriere and singer Harry Balafonte, whose music has featured in Beetlejuice.

Academy's Special 2014 Honorees: Veterans Belafonte, Carrière, Miyazaki and - Finally - O'Hara

29 August 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »
