Studio Ghibli co-founder, Isao Takahata (The Grave of the Fireflies) returns to directing after more than a decade with an adaptation of a classic tale of the tenth century Japanese Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of Princess Kaguya). Based on the folktale The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, the film is drawn in a classic watercolor and brush stroke technique. This brief teaser just appeared on Japanese television - the film is scheduled for release in Tokyo later this year.

    Like the traditional Asian folklore illustrations style for this film. Very unique.

    Well, I want to see more, teaser indeed! I loved the sensitivity of Grave of the Fireflies.
