Watch: New English Trailer for The Tale of the Princess Kaguya

StudioCanal UK's YouTube channel released a new trailer for Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. It features voices from the English dub version, including Chloë Grace Moretz as the titular character, and displays some of the - justifiably - high praise the film has been gathering from critics. The trailer also casually mentions that the Ghibli film is up for a Best Animated Feature Academy Award later today.

The advertisement does a nice job of showing us the beautifully stylized animation while teasing the affecting story of the girl from the bamboo shoot. Watch it below:

The Tale of the Princess Kaguya is directed by Isao Takahata (Grave of the FirefliesPom PokoMy Neighbors the Yamadas) and opens in the UK on 20th March, 2015.


  1. Hey! Just one clarification. The film already got release in the US on Oct 17, 2014 and it was just released on BD on February 17, 2015.

  2. Yes, it appears it was. Oops. I will update the post. Thanks for the heads up.
