Watch Six Minutes Of Studio Ghibli's TALE OF THE BAMBOO CUTTER Now!
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.

Of all the major animation directors in Japan, Takahata has long been the one least bound by the forms and style of typical Japanese anime. Yes, some of his films use the typical Ghibli style but more do not and this one very much finds Takahata exploring other styles and image to great effect. It's simply beautiful, beautiful work. Take a look below.

Wow. That actually had me in tears - which doesn't happen often for movies in general, let alone previews. A good omen for what should be an amazing movie.

Then again, this would not be the first time that this incredible director has moved me to tears (I'm looking at you, Grave of the Fireflies).

This is beautiful. I can't wait to see the whole film.
