The images I’m seeing from Studio Ghibli’s upcoming Tales of Earthsea have me really, really wanting to see this movie.
A trailer (by way of lnhammer and dbborroughs)
A synopsis (by way of lucy_anne)
Some very interesting compression to make this a single story, yet it feels true to the spirit of the original, too. I’m–hopeful. Some of those images are awfully haunting, in just the sort of way that tends to pull me in.
But then, I’ve long preferred Earthsea over Middle Earth. Not that I’m not deeply moved by Middle Earth, too–but given a choice, I’ll take the grand sweep of things seen through the lens of individual lives, over individual lives glimpsed through the grand sweep, just about every time.
