There’s a new movie coming out from Studio Ghibli, The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter (Kaguya-hime no Monogatari). It looks like a bit of a departure from their usual style, but being a Ghibli film, it still looks utterly gorgeous. It’s based on a 10th century Japanese folktale, and tells the story of Kaguya, a princess who was discovered as a baby inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant.
So, dear reader. Are you a Studio Ghibli fan? What’s your favourite film? Do you want to see The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter?
