Studio Ghibli co-founder Takahata Isao returns to Japanese screens on November 23rd with the release of his latest animated feature, The Tale Of The Bamboo Cutter
(Kaguya-hime no Monogatari
) and with the public release just around the corner a six minute preview has arrived online.

Take a look below.
