Anime-Eye from Haze no shana

Ghibli Earthsea

A thread over on ozarque this week reminded me of the forthcoming Studio Ghibli Earthsea movie.

The second-to-last director's entry is about showing the movie to Ursula Le Guin (back in early August). Quoth the author (in translated translation), "It is not my book. It is your film. It is a good film." I wonder what her reaction is at greater length?

Before that, it premiered in Japan and Korea. Since then, it's premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Further news? I don't know.
