Studio Ghibli Unveils a First Look at ‘The Red Turtle’

The famed animation company returns with its premiere co-produced film.

Studio Ghibli returns with another eye-catching animated film titled The Red Turtle, which will debut at Cannes Film Festival. The project marks the first external co-production for the beloved Japanese animation studio as it was partially created in France with Why Not Productions and the Wild Bunch and directed by London-based animator Michael Dudok de Wit. As Spirited Away director Hayao Miyazaki has shifted towards short films at age 75 and Isao Takahata marked his final feature with The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, the collaborative angle seems to be a valid way to keep Studio Ghibli projects ongoing as two of its main talents are nearing retirement. The Red Turtle doesn’t contain any dialogue and presents a mesmerizing Cast Away-like storyline, featuring whimsical creatures and stunning backdrops very much to the tune of Studio Ghibli’s signature art direction. View the trailer above and catch the film in theaters in France starting June 2016 and in Japan September 2016.
