This isn’t the Chihiro you’re looking for. It’s been a while since we last got a film from Spirited Away’s Studio Ghibli, but the studio’s former president Toshio Suzuki seems to have changed all that with his involvement on The Red Turtle, a French animated film co-produced by him and Ghibli. Film distributor TOHO has unveiled footage for the Japanese release of the film:
Title: The Red Turtle: Aru Shima no Monogatari (The Tale of a Certain Island)
Text: Where is this place?
Text: What time am I in?
Text: Where did I come from? Where am I going to?
The Red Turtle was screened at the Cannes Film Festival and Annecy Film Festival earlier this year; it’s scheduled to premiere on Japanese screens on September 17. The film will be released in North America on January 20, 2017. Don’t worry about subtitles for dialogue, though; the film is completely unvoiced.
