The prelude drags a bit but once that is all done and set-up the film realy lifts off. It's not true to the book but it's an amazing achievement nonetheless for a first time director. And no matter how it compresses the movies stories to one widely accesible fantasy tale it does capture it's soul with great animation and incredible music. I give it a solid 8/10.
Disney has announced that it will theatrically release Studio Ghibli's Tales from Earthsea (Gedo Senki) in the US on August 13th under its Touchstone Pictures banner. The movie, directed by Goro Miyazaki, the son of revered anime director Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Ponyo, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro) several books from Ursula K. Le Guin's series of novel. The feature premiered in Japan back in 2006, and hit other English speaking territories, such as the UK and Australia since then, but its US release has been delayed due to the Sci-Fi Channel's now expiring hold on the Earthsea rights.
Cast for the English dub includes Timothy Dalton, Willem Dafoe, Cheech Marin and Mariska Hargitay.
Reviews of the movie weren't especially positive, especially by the standards of the frequently lauded Studio Ghibli, and it is generally remembered a cause of friction between Hayao and Goro Miyazaki. Le Guin was likewise cold to the work
