Tales From Earthsea in US Theatres July 2010
Wikipedia and the Ultimate Disney forums are reporting that Tales From Earthsea (Gedo Senki), Goro Miyazaki's 2006 directoral debut, will be released in the US in theatres on July, 2010.
I am currently scrambling to find some confirmation, as this story is being spread around the internet far and wide. I would expect to see Gedo Senki on DVD (and eventually Blu-Ray), but a theatrical run? This would be very remarkable. But I remember similar plans made for Nausicaa a few years ago, and those plans fell through. I'll believe it when I see it, but relations between Ghibli and Disney have thawed dramatically this year.
I'm no fan of Goro-san's Earthsea movie. I think it's the worst film in the Ghibli roster by a mile. Even so, Studio Ghibli on the big screen in America is such a rare event that it's worth turning out.
