The first trailer of Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata’s Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of Princess Kaguya) was revealed on Japanese variety programme. It is the first film Takahata has done for 14 years (My Neighbors the Yamadas was his last), and it also uses the same water colour style of visuals.

The story is a retelling of 10th century Japanese folktale Taketori Monogatari (The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter), and centres around the moon princess Kaguya, who is discovered as a baby inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant.

The film’s release has been delayed as it was meant to open alongside Hayao Miyazaki’s Kaze Tachinu (The Wind is Rising), but it will open in Japan this autumn.
