If you saw the Japanese anime classic Grave of the Fireflies and didn't cry, chances are you have a heart of stone. That movie doesn't tug at the heartstrings, it violently grabs them and unleashes a furious melody of sorrow!
Now we have the first teaser (via The Film Stage) for Fireflies- director 's new animated feature on our hands.
The Japanese teaser (which, weirdly, comes with reactions from an audience) gives the impression of a gentle, charming movie for children, not sad at all.
I suggest bringing a pile of handkerchiefs just in case...
Watch the The Tale of Princess Kaguya teaser below:
The Tale of Princess Kaguya (OT: Kaguya-hime no Monogatari) tells the story of a bamboo cutter who finds a thumb-sized baby inside a piece stalk of bamboo. What he doesn't know, is that he hasn't just found any tiny baby: she's a princess!
