FULL TRAILER: Studio Ghibli’s “Tale of the Bamboo Cutter”

FULL TRAILER: Studio Ghibli's "Tale of the Bamboo Cutter"

Here is the full trailer for Studio Ghibli’s latest, Kaguya-hime no Monogatari  (The Story of Princess Kaguya), directed and co-written by Isao Takahata, based on the folktale The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.  It’s a quiet, nuanced, deceptively simple bit of beauty…
This is Isao Takahata fifth film for Studio Ghibli, and his first film for them in 14 years. He directed the now classic Grave of the Fireflies (1988), as well as the delightful Pom Poko (1994).
