Exclusive New The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya Poster

Lovely Ghibli-y

The great Hayao Miyazaki may no longer be calling the shots on Studio Ghibli’s animated features but the studio is still ticking along nicely. Its latest, The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya, is the work of his co-founder Isao Takahata (Grave Of The Fireflies) and promises a typically loving, hand-drawn interpretation of a folk tale, The Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter. Take a look at its new poster by clicking on the image below. Joining other great movie princesses (Leia, Belle, Buttercup… Padmé, to a lesser extent) on the big screen, Kaguya is a tiny discovery made by a curious man who finds her inside a bamboo stalk. She’s raised by him and his wife to become a beautiful young woman who finds herself the subject of many suitors. She alone, however, is privy to a secret that will affect her life.

The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya is out in the UK on March 20.
